Bluegrass on the Green

Welcome to the Bluegrass Festival on the Green in historic Frankfort, Illinois, twice nominated for the IBMA Event of the Year Momentum Award. Our mission is to bring top quality award-winning national and regional bluegrass acts to Frankfort to showcase this truly American music with a free festival that highlights the historic downtown.


Join us July 14-15 in 2018

We're planning another great festival. Two stages, "Briedert Green Stage," and "Prairie Park Stage," will host top local and national bluegrass bands. Plenty of food, vendor tents, and craft activities will be on and around the Green, not to mention great dowtown restaurants and businesses. You can enjoy free concerts, workshops, and lots of picking and jamming. Fun for the whole family.
