Even though the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County had to cancel our annual Dickens of a Christmas event in downtown Franklin, Tennessee – you can still participate in one of the most beloved events of the festival, the window display contest!
The Heritage Foundation of Williamson County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
dedicated to preserving Williamson County's architectural, geographic and cultural heritage since 1967. In addition to saving and restoring buildings such as The Franklin Theatre, the Old, Old Jail and its newest project, the former O'More College of Design campus, now renamed Franklin Grove Estate & Gardens, the Foundation also produces all the major street festivals.

Main Street Festival and Dickens of a Christmas were started in 1984 as part of the Downtown Franklin Association (DFA), with the goal of driving tourism and economic vitality to a developing city. Dickens of a Christmas started a year later. About 36 years later, the DFA is one of the Heritage Foundation's divisions and is still focused on the continued revitalization of downtown. Our "Holiday Magic on Main Street" initiative
is evidence of that. Learn more about those festivities happening this month: DowntownFranklinTN.com/holidaymagic
