2018 Is A Transformative Year





Franklin County Visitors Bureau (FCVB) looks ahead to a transformative 2018. In 2017, FCVB celebrated the tenth anniversary of ExploreFranklinCountyPA.com and the Franklin County Visitors Guide, the two cornerstones of promoting what to see and do, where to dine, and where to stay in Franklin County PA. In 2018, promotion will take another step forward as FCVB begins renovations of the 1865 bank building at 15 South Main Street. The building is the next cornerstone in the FCVB mission to make the public aware of Franklin County as a destination. FCVB purchased the bank building in December 2016, developed the reuse plans throughout 2017, and will open the 11/30 Welcome Center and new home of the Franklin County Visitors Bureau in fall 2018.

Agriculture is a consistent part of Franklin County’s economy and pairs well with tourism because visitors are attracted to freshly grown food, festivals, and the open space beauty of farmland. Beginning the last weekend of September, Franklin County has fall harvest festivals, corn mazes, hayrides, and pumpkin picking through the first weekend in November. Visit the Fall Fun listings for a selection of apple festivals, beer fests, and pumpkin festivals.

“It’s a great time to explore. The foliage is amazing, and families enjoy corn mazes and hayrides. Franklin County is a favorite spot for a fall hike, a drive, or a bike ride. Our trails are amazing when the trees are gold, crimson, and copper,” said Janet Pollard executive director of the Franklin County Visitor’s Bureau.
