It’s a festive weekend in Downtown Frederick with a different thing to celebrate everywhere you turn! If you didn’t feel like partying before now you will…

Here’s some ideas to get you started:

1️⃣ It’s not too late to attend Celebrate Frederick’s first ever speak-easy style Bootleggers Ball on Friday at McClintock Distilling – costumes encouraged!

2️⃣ Hear straight from the artists featured in The House on Jonathan Street documentary (making its television debut across America this week) and Gaslight Gallery exhibit opening this weekend.

3️⃣ Grab your gals and head over to Frederick Social on Saturday for a Galentine’s Day party featuring shopping, snacks, flirty cocktails and photo ops!

4️⃣ Keep the celebrations going at Brewer’s Alley Mardi Gras Bash on Saturday with music, drinks, and special menu items. Yes, there will be Beignets!

5️⃣ We know this event isn’t until Tuesday… but it’s too good not to extend your weekend plans! Join Attaboy Beer and Curious Iguana for a romance book fair for adults only. Blind date with a book, enjoy pink drinks, take selfies, plus local romance authors will be book signing.
