VETFEST brings services, vendors, food trucks and a 5K to Harlinsdale on Veterans Day weekend

VETLINX, a Nashville-based nonprofit organization committed to bridging gaps in services to veterans through projects and events, will hold its third-annual VETFEST from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10, at The Park at Harlinsdale Farm, 239 Franklin Road, Franklin, Tennessee.

VETFEST will feature musical entertainment, events and games for all ages, vendors and food trucks. Veterans organizations and various civic clubs also will have booths.

“It is a salute to, and celebration of, military service,” said VETLINX chairwoman Laurel Bowman, RN. “There is no admittance charge, and we hope veterans, those presently serving, their families and friends and the public at large will come out for a day of fun.”
