Cookin' For A Cause

On August 24th, 2019 the air in Franklin, Tennessee will be filled with the sweet aroma of hickory smoke and simmering sauce for the 'Great Americana Barbecue Festival' at Harlinsdale Farm.

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 is 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 three million dollars to local charities. FNRC continues to produce The Franklin Rodeo, Williamson County's longest running annual event, celebrating its 70th year.
