Sample Event

Join us on sample date

What time does the event start?

The event starts at 7 pm; however, if you arrive early the silent auction will be open by 6 pm for guests to look through.

What time does it end?

The wine stations will be taken down at 10 pm.

Do you provide Safe Rides Home?

Yes, through our partner Sedan on Demand. They will be available at the front entrance to The Factory, adjacent to the information desk. You can also contact them to make arrangements to be dropped off at the event at (615) 254-4600.

What to wear?

Dress comfortably, as if you were going out to dinner at one of the Franklin area restaurants. As is the charm of Middle Tennessee – some folks will be in sequins, others in jeans. We will point out that The Factory at Franklin is concrete throughout, so plan your shoe choices accordingly.

I’m attending a Vintner’s Dinner. What do I wear to that?

Most attendees for our Vintner’s Dinners are business casual to smart casual. Dress as if you were attending the restaurant on any other night with your significant other.  As a heads-up, know you will probably have your photo taken at some point during the night.

Should you eat first before attending the Grand Tasting?

We recommend yes - something light. Our exhibiting restaurants offer a wide array for tasting, but the majority of the items lean towards heavier and richer foods. Your stomach might thank you if you arrive with something in it.

Do you provide Designated Driver tickets?

Yes, for $35. You will receive a plate at event check in but no glass.

How much are regular tickets?

$89 in advance, $100 at the door if the event does not sell out.
