Get your Strawberry shortcake and enjoy your Stroll on Main St this Friday, June 10

The Franklin Downtown Partnership (FDP) is thrilled to be able to bring back its annual Strawberry Stroll this year, after a two-year break due to the pandemic. Enjoy a taste of summer with mouth-watering strawberry shortcakes while enjoying entertainment, fun activities, and more than 90 vendor booths at the annual Strawberry Stroll in downtown Franklin on Friday, June 10 from 4 PM to 8 PM.  The rain date is Saturday, June 11 from 4 PM to 8 PM.

"We are excited to hold the first Strawberry Stroll since June of 2019, said Kevin Johnson of Edward Jones and this year’s Strawberry Stroll chair. “This is our opportunity to invite everyone to come together downtown and experience the local businesses. The mix of entertainers, vendors, and activities will make it a special evening for all ages."

Dean Bank’s staff will be serving the signature strawberry shortcakes under the tents in front of the bank. Strawberries donated and cut by Dean College will be piled on top of hundreds of shortcakes and topped with whipped cream. Proceeds from the sale of strawberry shortcakes are allocated to the FDP to help fund the event.

Plenty of entertainment will be available during the Strawberry Stroll. Dean Bank will host Dancing on Dean that will feature the band Scott Brown and the Diplomats from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the corner of Dean Avenue and Main Street. MyFM 101.3 will be broadcasting live from the top of Main Street. On the Birchwood Bakery patio, Dom DeBaggis will perform from 4 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. and from 6:15 p.m. to 8 p.m., Heath Nesbitt will perform.

A variety of activities will be offered that will appeal to young and old. The weekly Farmers’ Market which starts at 2 p.m. will continue until 6 p.m. on the common. Additionally, during the Stroll at 6 p.m., the FDP will unveil the Ladybug Cultural and Historical Trail which uses ladybug sculptures to tie approximately 25 historical and cultural sites together in downtown Franklin. Visitors can receive their Ladybug Cultural and Historical Trail maps at the FDP booth or by visiting the Franklin Historical Museum.

The Franklin Art Association (FAA) is having an exhibit during the Strawberry Stroll on June 10 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Rockland Trust Annex. The show is open to all members of the FAA and is being judged with ribbons awarded for first, second, third place and honorable mention recognition in four categories.

There will also be small works for sale in the show. The FAA will also have a booth on Main Street in front of the Rockland Trust Annex and it will feature a fundraising raffle of donated art and photography to raise funds for the support of FAA ongoing expenses. The tent and display panels and booth supplies were purchased with a grant from the Franklin Cultural Council and Franklin Cultural District. 

“FDP’s Strawberry Stroll celebrates all that is downtown Franklin, showcasing businesses, restaurants, organizations, institutions, town government, and culture and the arts. Join the fun and ‘Stroll’ Main Street Franklin on June 10,” said Pandora Carlucci of PGC Associates LLC. Carlucci and Roberta Trahan are vendor relations coordinators for this year’s Strawberry Stroll.

The Strawberry Stroll Committee encourages people in attendance to visit the downtown businesses and restaurants, especially the six new shops: Birchwood Bakery and Kitchen, Briller Boutique, Escape Into Fiction, Greco Design Co., I Have Coins and Collectibles, and Zuzu’s Petals & Cafe.

The Strawberry Stroll is made possible by the support of local sponsors. The event’s Platinum Sponsors are Dean Bank and PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Gold sponsors are Dean College, Middlesex Savings Bank, and Mosquito Mary’s. Silver sponsors are Camford Property Group, Inc., and Fenton Financial Group. Bronze sponsors are Beaux Regards Photographic Art, Grove Street Auto Repair, Keefe Insurance, Mint Dental of Franklin and LeafFilter.

Entertainment is supported in part by grants from the Franklin Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Jamie, Tom, & Lily join Steve to Talk Franklin, recap the budget, and look ahead to plenty of events (audio)

FM #810 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 810 in the series. 


This session of the radio show shares the special combination of “Talk Franklin” with Town Administrator Jamie Hellen, and Town Council Quarterbacking with Chair Tom Mercer. 


Talk Franklin was on the schedule for Friday, and given the double meeting of the Town Council for the budget hearings, it made sense to cover our Town Council Quarterbacking session after both public hearings, hence combining them together.


Lily Rivera, Marketing & Communication Specialists joins us on the Friday before the Memorial Day weekend to recap the budget, town state of affairs and look out to the near term events coming in June, Farmers Market opens June 3rd, and then the Strawberry Festival and the Franklin For All booth on June 10 kicks off ArtWALK and the Ladybug Trail. 


The conversation runs about 44 minutes. Let’s listen into my conversation with Jamie, Tom and Lily.

Strawberry Stroll, Ladybug Trail, ARTWALK and Second Sunday Speaker Series all in one weekend at the Historical Museum!

The Franklin Historical Museum plans a busy June weekend beginning with a special Friday night opening June 10. In conjunction with the Franklin Downtown Partnership the museum will be open from 4 PM - 8 PM during the annual Strawberry Stroll celebration. The much anticipate Ladybug Cultural & Historical Trail will be dedicated that evening, on Main Street, as well.  

Stop by the museum to visit two points of interest on the trail, the Delegates Ladybug, which tells the story of the Ladybug becoming our ‘state insect’. And the Straw Hat Sculpture, sitting happily on the museum’s front lawn, which is a nod to the once thriving straw industry in our town. Learn a bit about the 2nd grade Kennedy School class that went to the State House and learned about the legislative process of making a new state law.

Saturday morning, June 11 the LiveARTS string quartet performs at 10:30 AM as part of the Franklin ArtWALK Celebration sponsored by the Franklin Cultural District. Events around town during this 3-day celebration include live performances, art exhibits, family activities, a kick off reception and more. The Franklin Historical Museum is proud to once again host one of the many live performances for this event. For more information on the ArtWALK schedule visit www.franklinculture.org

Rounding off this busy weekend is our Second Sunday Speaker Series with a presentation on the 150 year history of the Franklin Fire Department as they commemorate their founding in 1872. Fire photographs from the Stanley Chilson collection will be on display, and a presentation of interesting facts and figures recounting the early years from hand drawn pumper wagons, to horse drawn pumper wagons to today’s finest and fastest rescue apparatus. Do you know when our first fire station was built? Do you know which prominent Franklin citizen of his day funded the building that served our town for so many years? Do you remember the fire whistle signals? Join us and take a look back at the changes the years have brought to the Franklin Fire Department.  Doors open at 1:00pm and the presentation will start at 1:15. 

Admission is always free and we are ADA accessible. 

Be sure to visit our gift shop which is run by the Friends of the Franklin Historical Museum.

Strawberry Stroll - Canceled for 2020

Strawberry Stroll Canceled for 2020
Strawberry Stroll Canceled for 2020
"After thoughtful consideration, the board of the Franklin Downtown Partnership has regretfully decided to cancel this year’s Strawberry Stroll. Normally held in June, the Strawberry Stroll is a tremendous community event attracting thousands of people to downtown Franklin. Given the current pandemic, however, it is impossible to know if such a community gathering will be possible or safe in June. So the FDP Board has decided to plan for an even larger Harvest Festival on Oct. 3, 2020.

In place of the Strawberry Stroll, the FDP is developing several smaller events in late summer and early fall.

“We’re considering events such as restaurant walks, small business Tuesdays, and other promotional events geared towards rebuilding local business,” said Lisa Piana, executive director of the FDP. “We are planning to hold those events once social distancing guidelines have been relaxed or removed.”

If you have some creative ideas about smaller events the FDP could organize to support local business, please email Executive Director Lisa Piana."
