Chamber Sponsored Events

CONCERTS ON THE GREEN

In May, when we canceled the June and July concerts, we were hoping to be able to resume in August. Unfortunately, that will not be possible.
After much discussion with Mayor Jim Holland, we are not able to comply with the Restore Illinois Phase IV guidelines and ensure a safe, controlled environment for concert-goers and our community.
Thank you again for your continued support of this great Frankfort tradition. We look forward to offering Concerts on the Green again next year.
