Franklin – Saturday December 2, 2023 @ 2PM (Map)

Winding through the streets of Historic Downtown Franklin, the Franklin Christmas Parade is a community celebration of the customs of Christmas and has been a Franklin holiday tradition for over 30 years. The Franklin Christmas Parade was the brainchild of the Kiwanis Club of Franklin which has presented the parade since its inception. The Franklin Christmas Parade has brought thousands of hours of pleasure to both the participants and the community at large as we gather to celebrate Christmas and herald the arrival of Santa Claus to Franklin.

The Franklin Christmas Parade is always held on the first Saturday in December (or the day after the City Christmas Tree lighting).

Beginning this year, our club, Downtown Franklin Rotary, has been entrusted with this legacy event and will be presenting the parade. We accept this responsibility with gratitude and will treat the parade as a great opportunity to serve our community and a festive, joyful way for our club to say thank you to our community and the great city of Franklin.
