It has been a year of big changes for us here at the Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce and Welcome Center. We have so much to be thankful for all year round, but we’d like to take this opportunity to reflect and say THANK YOU to our Chamber of Commerce members, volunteers, family, and our Board of Directors. Without all of your leadership, countless hours of volunteering, donations, and expertise, we would be hard pressed to have been able to have such an incredible year. From the Fourth of July Fireworks in the Park, to the Mountain High BBQ Festival & Car Show, to the Great American Solar Eclipse, we’ve had an incredible year and we’re already looking forward to 2018.

The Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce & Welcome Center


We’re most thankful to live in such an amazing community of people here in Franklin. We are proud to call this place our home and we couldn’t be more honored to serve not only the visitors who come to the area, but the businesses who serve the residents of Franklin & Nantahala. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends. We are looking forward to this year’s Christmas Parade on Sunday, November 26th at 3 PM in downtown Franklin, and hope to see you there!

From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
