Much Anticipated Wine Down Main Street Returns November 6th for 20th Anniversary Supporting Boys & Girls Clubs

Elecoustic Soul to Headline VIP Event at Historic Franklin Theater

FRANKLIN, TN (07/12/21) – On Saturday, November 6, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., downtown Franklin will once again come alive with toasts and cheers at Wine Down Main Street, a unique wine tasting event that takes place along Historic Main Street in Franklin, Tennessee. Voted Williamson’s Best Charity Event, it’s considered the best night out all year: the streets are closed to traffic; wines, beers and spirits, provided by Lipman Brothers, are poured in the charming shops; food samplings are provided by area restaurants; and local musicians entertain thousands of attendees along the way.

Wine Down Main Street benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee and has raised more than $2.1 million dollars since its inception in support of youth ages 5 – 18 years old. Last years event was cancelled due to the global pandemic. “Since the first signaling of things opening back up, I’ve been stopped, called, and emailed constantly by businesses and individuals asking if Wine Down Main Street is happening,” said Denise Carothers, director of resource development for Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee. “I’m thrilled to share the event is happening, and one of the original creators has returned to ensure this milestone year is the best yet as we raise funds to support thousands of young people.”

New this year, the Historic Franklin Theatre will host VIP guests. The Franklin Theatre, located right in the heart of historic downtown Franklin, will treat VIP guests to signature cocktails as well as select Lipman Bros. wines, along with choice food selections, and the soulful sounds of Elecoustic Soul ( VIP tickets are $125 per person and include admission to the Franklin Theater.
