Bluegrass on the Green

Welcome to the Frankfort Bluegrass Festival, winner of the 2018 IBMA Event of the Year Award. Our mission is to bring top quality award-winning national and regional bluegrass acts to downtown Frankfort, IL to showcase this truly American music. We are a 100% non-for-profit free 2 day festival only made possible by dedicated volunteers, donations and sponsorships from people like you.


Two stages, "Briedert Green Stage," and "Prairie Park Stage," host over 40 performances by more than 20 , national, regional, and local bands. Plenty of food, vendor tents, and craft activities are on and around the Festival, 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. Winning the IBMA "Event of the Year" reflects the true spirit of the bluegrass community.
