Bluegrass on the Green

Thanks to EVERYONE for supporting a great weekend festival. Saturday morning kicked off the first of two days of great bluegrass music, workshops, and family fun on Briedert Green in historic Frankfort, Illinois. The weather was great, the bands were outstanding, and the crowd was happy. A special thanks to the volunteers who have worked all year to make this happen, to the sponsers who supported the festival, and to the bluegrass fans who came out to take part. Now we start on next year.

Plenty of food vendor tents, and craft activities 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.
