Downtown Frederick’s Top 5 September 30- October 2

The first weekend in October can only mean one thing downtown…it’s First Saturday weekend! There are so many lively activities happening downtown that it was difficult to narrow it down to just the Top 5. This week’s selection gives a nod to festivals and pop-ups (you can view our complete calendar here and our First Saturday-specific events here) with a bit of retro music too. Be sure to wander around, even if there’s a little bit of rain, to visit your favorite shops, restaurants and galleries. We can’t wait to see you downtown this weekend!
