Next Event - Celebration of Nations - Saturday - October 11th 2014

Welcome
We still have a few festivals and events for 2014, and believe it or not, we plan on adding to the list before the year is over.  The next festival is "Celebration of Nations".  After the successful change of location last year to downtown Franklin, it seemed only natural to return.  There will also be an international beer tasting from 5p.m. - 8 p.m. that you don't want to miss.  For more information about the event click on the tab above.  If your act or group is interested in performing at any of the events listed below, click here - Performer Ap . - or on the tab at the top of this page and complete the short online application.  This will get you into the system so that you can be placed before the different audition committees to be considered.  Once you hit the submit button at the bottom of the application you will see a box pop up that states that your application has been received.  We are looking for small and large groups, student, professional, and non-professional groups, dance school groups, jazz, rock and classical groups.  Most time slots are 45 minutes or 1 hour.  Check out the list of past performers below....if we haven't already...hopefully we'll be adding your name!!!

THE FOLLOWING IS PRESS RELEASE CONCERNING THIS YEARS JAZZ FESTIVAL

Franklin, Tennessee - The Franklin Jazz Festival, which is normally Labor Day Weekend, will not be happening this year.  Since this year Labor Day Weekend falls earlier, August 30th & 31st, and there are numerous other events happening that weekend, there were concerns from merchants over street closures.  The decision has been made to change the date of the event.  The possibilities are being explored at having the festival in the early spring.  One of the reasons that this event is being considered for the spring is so that jazz programs at middle school, high school, and college levels can be involved and perform at the festival.  Stay tuned for more information at FranklinJazzFestival.com  Also, for more up to date Franklin Jazz Festival Information please friend us on our Facebook Page – Franklin Jazz Festival.
