The industry has spoken and the rich sound of bluegrass music has catapulted Frankfort into the global spotlight.

The International Bluegrass Music Association proclaimed Frankfort Bluegrass on the Green the 2018 Event of the Year during its awards ceremony gathering in Raleigh, North Carolina, last September.

One year removed from the ultimate praise from peers, the organizing committee is hardly resting on its laurels, but rather hustling to top last year’s award-winning event and rallying the volunteers needed for another successful undertaking.
