On Saturday, November 3, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. downtown Franklin comes alive with Wine Down Main Street, a unique wine tasting event that takes place along Historic Main Street in Franklin, Tennessee.Â Voted the number one Fundraiser/Charity Event 10 years in a row in the Sizzle Awards, it’s the best night out all year: the streets are closed to traffic; wines, beers and spirits, provided by Lipman Brothers, are poured in the shops; food samplings are provided by area restaurants; and local musicians entertain you along the way.
Wine Down Main Street benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, Franklin and Fairview Clubs, and has raised more than $1,859,737 since its inception in support of youth ages
5 â€“ 18 years old.
