Frankfort Fall Fest, Aug 31 – Sept. 4

The Village of Frankfort will host its popular annual Fall Festival in downtown Frankfort. The festival features music, food, entertainment and  dozens of craft outlets and artisans. The main events take place beginning Friday Sept. 1 ending on Monday Sept. 4

Each year during Labor Day weekend, over 250,000 visitors gather to the charming Village of Frankfort to enjoy the Frankfort Fall Festival.  The festival welcomes over 300 artisans from all over the United States to exhibit their elite products and services. In addition, many of Frankfort’s local organizations collaborate by sponsoring special events that highlight Frankfort Fall Festivities.  There is something for everyone from carnival rides to main stage entertainment, to walking tacos and funnel cakes, Frankfort Fall Fest has it ALL!

The theme for 2017 is “Frankfort & Co.”  A business community that is Elegant. Unique. Classic. In keeping with that we will be adding a few new attractions to the Festival including a Gourmet packaged foods area! So mark your calendars and get ready for Fall Festival 2017, Frankfort & Co! We look forward to welcoming everyone to Frankfort Fall Festival September 2nd – September 4th, 2017!

The events take place around Nebraska and White Streets in Frankfort.

One of the most beloved parts of Fall Fest weekend is our parade! The parade steps off at 1:00pm Sunday afternoon from Pacific and Maple. The parade proceeds east on Pacific, turns North on Oak, turns East on Utah, turns North on Ash, turns West on Nebraska and ends at Locust. So grab a blanket or lawn chair and get a spot along the route!

Our food court is run entirely by local civic organizations in conjunction with local businesses.  So you can feel good grabbing a bite to eat at Fall Fest because you know you will be helping our local non-profits. From smoothies, to bacon dogs, to funnel cakes you can find it in the food court!! (And of course there are lemon shake-ups!!)
