+ The Franklin Community

Are there things to do around the venue during the day?

The Factory is home to several restaurants and artisan shops. You can enjoy antiques, musical instruments, gift shops, and more. Go to Factory At Franklin for a complete list of vendors.

Historic Downtown Franklin is also not to be missed. Just five minutes away, the public square area is loaded with interesting shops, restaurants, and historic sites. When heading our way for a show, take a little extra time beforehand to explore our beautiful city. Visit Franklin for maps, tours, and the Visitor Guide. The Visit Franklin Visitor Center is located on Main Street.

Do the Franklin Trolleys pick up and drop off at the Factory?

The Franklin Trolleys can get you to the Factory before our box office opens but you would need to arrange transportation back to your destination. Trolleys are operated by the City of Franklin. They run daily between downtown, the Factory, and many points around the city. Their service hours are Monday-Saturday 6:00am-6:00pm. Go to Franklin Transit for schedules and maps.

I want hold an event at the Factory. How do I reserve a room?

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Factory is an ideal location for company or family functions, charitable events, video shoots, product launches, and fashion shows. Over 30,000 square feet of event space is available to rent seven days a week. Music City Roots is in Liberty Hall on Wednesdays, but the room is available the rest of the week, as are other private spaces such as Jamison Hall. Go to Factory At Franklin for private events information.
