In mid-July a surge of bluegrass music swept through Frankfort during the community’s eighth annual bluegrass festival. More than 20 local, regional and national bands performed in downtown Frankfort during the two-day  festival. 

Three months later, after earning international recognition as Event of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association, the Frankfort Bluegrass Festival was honored during the Frankfort Village Board meeting on Oct. 15.

Festival committee member Jon Hamilton said the win puts Frankfort on the map.
