Allow festivals that include alcohol consumption to be held on town property

This petition had 104 supporters


JEPaCA is a newly formed event planning organization.

We aspire to form and build on existing relationships between town and county governments, their citizens, and special interest groups through events, festivals and fundraisers to help boost the local economy and promote growth and tourism in Franklin, NC.

Currently, we are working towards a festival including music, food, craft beer, arts, trades, and other activities. The Whitmire Property would be a fantastic and beautiful location for the event to be held initially and for many years to come. Our ultimate goal is to convince the Town to allow the event on the property, in turn preserving the property and allowing it to be used for green space - an outdoor venue and park that will be connected to the Greenway.

The town board recently rejected our proposal for various reasons, one of them being that alcohol consumption is not allowed on town property. Sign this petition to inform the Mayor and Town Council of Franklin, NC that festivals with alcohol consumption are part of your vision for Franklin, NC, and urge them to support this vision.
