Much of the culture of the Frankfort, Kentucky area is centered around the city's history as Kentucky's state capitol and its role in the Civil War.  Many of the area's attractions dedicate themselves to educating visitors about this history.  One of the best, the Kentucky History Center, displays writings of early American pioneer and explorer, Daniel Boone, and several Civil Rights Era documents.  The center also conducts educational programs and has a research library.   

Another important aspect of Frankfort's culture is the bluegrass music that calls the state home.  Performances by local bluegrass groups are held frequently throughout the year in the city at various locals venues as well as outdoors.   The city also hosts a popular Bluegrass Festival each summer featuring well known local musicians.  For listings of bluegrass events in the Frankfort area, as well as for news and ticket and product giveaways, visit
