The 18th annual Blackberry Jam is here!

PLEASE NOTE: ADVANCE (online) TICKETS HAVE SOLD OUT. Gate tickets will be available for $15 until venue capacity is reached, which we anticipate at some point during the course of the event. At that point, only ticketholders and sponsor guests will be admitted. Children 12 years and under are always free. Dinner box sales have ended. A limited number of dinner boxes will also be available for sale at the event.

This year’s Blackberry Jam will take place as an limited capacity event from Boyd Mill Farm on June 26, 2021. COVID-19 tried to knock us down, so we met that challenge last year by going virtual, and celebrate being back together again for our 18th consecutive year!

Headlining this year’s event is R&B, Soul and Folk powerhouse Kyshona. Also performing are Jason Ringenberg, Carol and Dale, and Giri Peters. As we have for 18 years, the Jam will bring a talented, diverse line-up of musicians and our community together, and all for a great cause, Hard Bargain Association. Gates open at 4:30PM, with music from 5PM-8:30PM. This is a rain or shine event.


This year’s event is presented once again by Franklin’s Downtown and Noon Rotary Clubs, with stage sponsor LP Building Solutions, and support from 30 other area businesses and organizations. These perennial sponsors demonstrate why we have a wonderful community!


FOOD: Online food orders have ended. We will have a limited number of dinner boxes with drink available for purchase at the gate. We have partnered with Menu Maker Catering to provide a delicious meal: BBQ Pork Slider, Fried Chicken Slider, Baked Beans, Mac & Cheese, Fudge Brownie, Wrapped Cutlery & Bottled Sweet Tea. There will not be food trucks this year. And as always, you are welcome to bring your own picnic – lawn chairs, blankets, coolers! Chairs are not provided.

NOTE: We will not have a children’s concert and children’s activities this year.

See you this Saturday, June 26 at the Blackberry Jam!

Music makes the berries grow!
