Travel: October Nashville Fall Festival Guide

               Hey Everyone! I hope you are all having a great week! I can't believe it is already Wednesday, I am excited for Friday haha and another fun weekend ahead! October is such a fun month full of fall activities. I wanted to gather some of the main festivals here in Nashville and Franklin to share with you all. If you are planning a trip here this month or if you are a local, this is a great quick guide that shows you what festivals are going on, when, and where. 

               Festivals are always so much fun, especially in the Fall. My family and friends and I went last weekend to a wine festival in Illinois and had such a great time. It made me think of all of the fun festivals that are happening this month and thought it would be great to share. All of these festivals and more specific information is found on the Nashville Event site: Nashville Event's

              We are looking forward to attending the Pumpkin Fest in Franklin in late October, as we have gone for the last two years and have really enjoyed it! I hope you all have a chance to visit and attend one of these festivals this month! I am sure you will not be disappointed :) There is something for everyone.

Have a great week! Let me know if you have any questions about any of these events and I can do my best to research for you and help! xo
