We’re kicking off fall downtown in a big way this weekend! The annual In the Streets festival kicks off Saturday morning and runs through the day, with fun activities for the entire family. But that’s not all that’s happening! You can join Agave 137 in celebrating their opening weekend in style with events running Thursday through Sunday, or you can laugh with the Comedy Extravaganza at the MET, listen to great music with Chrome Rodeo at FAC, and hit up a special beer release benefitting Citizen’s Truck Company at Smoketown Creekside. There’s so much to do, you’ll want to stay for the entire weekend!

In the Streets

Saturday, September 10, 9am-9pm

Market St

For over 30 years, In The Streets has been a proud Frederick tradition held along Market Street and Carroll Creek Urban Park.

The festival began in 1983 after major renovations closed Market Street for several months.  When the dust settled Mayor Ron Young decided to hold a festival for the entire community to encourage reinvestment in downtown.  The Festival was held in the street, so the naming of the event was simple. That first In The Streets festival boasted 10,000 in attendance.  Today, In The Streets attracts crowds of over 75,000!

In The Streets continues to invite attendees to explore historic downtown Frederick, while offering a sampling of the diverse food, entertainment, art and non-profit resources that thrive in Frederick County.

9am: Market Street Mile
11am-5pm: In the Streets Festival
12pm-5pm: Craft Beverage Experience
5pm-9pm: Up the Creek Party
