Children 10 and under are free when accompanied by a pass-holding adult.
This year, the festival also welcomes new partner AARP. The AARP Rocks tent can be found near the Americana Music Triangle Experience, where visitors can see all that AARP has to offer the 50+ community and their families as they spin the prize wheel, take a photo, play music trivia and belt out some of their favorite tunes at the AARP Rockstar singing booth. Plus, AARP members will receive a special gift. Festivalgoers can stop by the AARP Rocks tent to learn more.
Along with music, Pilgrimage Festival is spotlighting community creatives with 40 artisanal vendors and local retailers in Makers Village and more than 25 food and beverage partners at the Farm-to-Turntable Food Truck Park and Craft Beer Hall.

Don’t miss out on what performer Brittney Spencer told CMT.com will be “such a fun time.” Last week, area residents got a taste of what’s in store at this year’s event with Pilgrimage Festival Week on Today in Nashville, which saw performances from festival artists People on the Porch, BEXAR, Tigirlily, The FBR and Aaron Vance, who is performing with Black Opry Revue. Pilgrimage Festival co-producer Kevin Griffin also stopped by to declare that “there’s something for everybody” at the eighth annual event.
