Event Description

Come experience the Great Americana Barbecue Festival!


Beginning August 24th, 2018 the air in Franklin, Tennessee will be filled with the sweet aroma of hickory smoke and simmering sauce for the inaugural 'Great Americana Barbecue Festival' at Harlinsdale Farm. 

The Flavor of Franklin opens up the Great Americana BBQ weekend with a celebration of the area’s best food and beverages.  Over 20 local restaurants and specialty food vendors will be on hand to give you a taste of some amazing food.

From 10 AM to 4 PM on Saturday August 25th visitors will enjoy some of the most “finger licking good" barbecue around, prepared by professional pit masters and iron chefs from across the country - all within the town limits of Franklin, TN - "the best small town in America" -  according to Southern Living and Trip Advisor.

The BBQ festival and The Flavor of Franklin are hosted by The Franklin BBQ Society and The Franklin Noon Rotary Club (FNRC). The FNRC has dedicated over six decades of service to its community and has distributed over two million dollars to local charities. FNRC continues to produce The Franklin Rodeo, Williamson County's longest running annual event, celebrating its 68th year.

Barbecue will take center stage with vendors, grilling demonstrations, and a Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) sanctioned barbecue competition, featuring 80 teams competing in five categories for over $10,000 in total cash prizes. Festival goers will be able to join in on the judging by selecting the “People’s Champion". The competition will go on "Rain or Shine..." Schedules are coming SOON! 

Patrons will enjoy local artisan flavors from Tennessee distilleries and craft beers (21+). Additionally, the festival will feature live music, craft vendors and a variety of food vendors. 

The music stage will feature some of the biggest and brightest young talent Music City has to offer. Plenty of special events during the day will make this a “must attend” event for the entire family! 

Come experience the Great Americana Barbecue Festival. It is great barbecue and great fun, all for a great cause.
