The Frankfort Fall Festival was a part of nationwide bicentennial festivals being hosted in 1977 and was put on by the city’s Chamber of Commerce. Thousands of celebrations were hosted in honor of the bicentennial of the establishment of the United States of America as an independent country, and were coordinated and publicized by the American Revolution Bicentennial Commission (ARBC) and the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration (ARBA). A complete listing of events hosted during the Frankfort Fall Festival was published by Frankfort News including booth locations, event times, hours open, etc. Although the festival was established in honor of the bicentennial, it continues on today and is celebrated each September with parades, booths, and other events.
