Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years.

6:00 – 10:00 pm – The Market August, St. Clair Street, Downtown Frankfort

The Market is a pop-up, open air makers-market located along historic St. Clair Street in Frankfort, KY. Presented by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Capital Lodge, The Market is held the last Friday (except holidays) of each month from June through November from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. While primarily serving as a platform for Frankfort community businesses, local artists, and nonprofits, The Market attempts to highlight the many talented and creative people in our community in a new and unique event format.

To make The Market possible, St. Clair Street from Main to Broadway will be temporarily closed to traffic. The Street will be lined with vendor booths, and the streetscape transformed. Vendors are asked to join us and sell their creations with preference given to local businesses. Additionally, a biergarten will be set up for patrons to enjoy on the street. Music from local and regional bands will complete each event.

While a fundraiser for the Odd Fellows Capital Lodge of Frankfort, the Makers Market is intended as a forum for community development. One tenant of Odd Fellowship is to “elevate the character of mankind” and we hope The Market helps build a stronger and more vibrant community. Please contact us for more information about The Market as we work to develop each event. Each event is free and open to the public. We hope o see you at the next Market.

Join us for a fun filled evening complete with crafts, food, and beer, the last Friday of each month June – November. We hope to see you for the next Market, June 30, 6-10pm.
