We’re celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month throughout downtown this weekend on First Saturday! From the Hispanic Heritage Festival along Carroll Creek to specials and giveaways from select merchants and eateries, you’ll find fun around every corner. We can’t wait to see you downtown!
Frederick Hispanic Heritage Festival
Saturday, October 7, 12pm-5pm
Carroll Park Park
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month each year, Centro Hispano turns Carroll Creek in downtown Frederick into a lively, colorful celebration of Hispanic art, culture and music.
The festival, which takes place annually on the first Saturday of October, features live music, dancing and food from a variety of Latin American countries. It’s a great way to showcase the richness and diversity of Hispanic culture and to shine a spotlight on the contributions our Hispanic neighbors have made and continue to make to our community.
