Registration is open for booths and other display areas at the Franklin Downtown Partnership’s annual Harvest Festival, which will be held Oct. 6. Spaces will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis for crafters, vendors, artists, and community groups; downtown businesses must register by Aug. 10 to secure storefront space. There is no booth fee for paid-up members of the business group; otherwise, display booths cost $125, and the fee for food vendors is $185. After Sept. 1, a late fee of $35 will be added, and registration will be closed after Sept. 5. Sponsors for the festival are needed as well.
