Alive @ Five 2023 Season Kick-Off

Alive @ Five kicks off May 11, featuring live music and craft beverages every Thursday through September 28!

New this year! Admission and drinks are $6 each. We’ve added cocktails to the mix – so take your pick from a crisp beer, refreshing wine or craft spirit! Local food trucks will also be serving up delicious fare and non-alcoholic beverages each week. Located in the Carroll Creek Amphitheater every Thursday from 5-8pm (May 11 – September 28), all events are 21+ only – don’t forget your ID.

Alive @ Five is a summer-long fundraiser for Downtown Frederick Partnership, made possible with the support of DARCARS Toyota of Frederick and an amazing team of sponsors and volunteers.
