Odd Fellows Market
Dec. 10, 2019
Our attorney is a member in good standing with the local Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) or simply Odd Fellows. In short, the Odd Fellows is an international fraternity focused on philanthropy and charity to the community in order to make the world a better place to live. One of the ways the local Frankfort, KY lodge (Capital Lodge) serves the community is through the Monthly Odd Fellows Market held during the summer on historic St. Clair Street.
Since 2017, the Odd Fellows Market has served to highlight local artists, entrepreneurs, and nonprofits. While preference is given to locals, vendors from surrounding communities are invited and encouraged to participate. The Market features live music, food, family activities, and a beer garden featuring local breweries. It’s our desire to create a fun and lively atmosphere for patrons and vendors alike.
The Market is a way for the Odd Fellows Capital Lodge to give back to the community we love. It allows both small start-ups and established businesses the opportunity for exposure to new clients and audiences. By offering low vending fees we hope to increase entrepreneurial opportunities for businesses that cannot afford full brick and mortar locations.
In addition to our attorney Jason Hart being a member of the Odd Fellows, Apollo Law is a proud sponsor of the Market. We have a strong desire for a healthy and robust community in Frankfort and so we try to do our part when we can to support our community.
