If you want it, Franklin’s got it. Tell us if we missed any of your favorite things to do this month!
5th – Franklin Art Scene
Talk a walk around the first Franklin Art Scene of the year and their 5th anniversary celebration on February 5th. Peruse art and meet other locals as you wander from site to site.
10th – 14th Love Americana Style
From Wednesday the 10th through Sunday the 14th, Franklin will be celebrating Valentine’s Day the Americana way. It feels like they’ve thought of all kinds of Valentines to lead up to the big day. They have Galentine’s Day, Puppy Love, Stupid Cupid and Everlasting Love, so you can celebrate any and every relationship you might have.

Every Tuesday – The Deconstructed Free Form Songwriters Night at Kimbro’s Pickin Parlor
Want to go to an open mic but don’t feel like waiting outside at the Bluebird? Kimbro’s has you covered. Every Tuesday night they host their own kind of open mic night. All types and styles of music are welcome. If you are there to play, sign ups start at 6:00 P.M., and if you are there to enjoy, the first artist starts at 7:00pm.
Every Wednesday – Music City Roots
If Tuesday open mic nights aren’t enough music for you, there’s always Music City Roots on Wednesdays. MCR is a two-hour radio show broadcasted live from The Factory. Each week, four to five bands play and tell you a little about what they do and why they do it.
