Franklin TN Events: Check Here For Upcoming Events In Franklin & Nashville Tennessee

williamson-country-fair-tennessee.jpgI can’t tell you how many times we’ve passed through downtown Franklin only to find some big event going on that we didn’t even have a clue about.

It’s kind of our own fault, because we don’t subscribe to the local newspaper. And that “free paper” that arrives… on occasion… well, we don’t usually get around to reading it until a week or so later. By then, any events advertised have already taken place.

But I’m still surprised that there isn’t more advertising and signage in the weeks leading up to events around here — especially the bigger ones. We’ve lived here (just a hop, skip & a jump away from historic downtown Franklin) for 6 years now, and I don’t think we’ve ever received a flier in the mail or a postcard reminder about events taking place in Franklin.

I realize it’s a small town, and word of mouth is probably what this town is used to in terms of getting the word out about major events. But in every other community we’ve lived in, we got postcards & fliers in the mail to remind us of major events. You know… the kind that of notices that you can then stick on the fridge, so you don’t forget!

What we’ve learned is…

If you really want to stay on top of the local events (and find out about them before they take place), then you pretty much have to seek out the information yourself, rather than wait for it to arrive on your doorstep.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I frequently write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed several years until switching gears to pursue things I was more passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun websites).
