On Saturday May 13th, downtown Franklin will burst with color, as an annual event begins to unfold – literally! It’s time for the annual Airing of the Quilts in Franklin, a time meant to celebrate the coming of Spring and honoring old tradition from the settler days.

Back in those days, the tradition was to air out your quilts after a cold winter in the spring air and sunshine. We are honoring that tradition on May 13 in downtown Franklin with our own version of “Airing of the Quilts”. Come and see all of the beautiful quilts that will be on display throughout downtown, along with information on the Macon County Quilt Trail.
