February First Saturday (Fire in Ice)


Keeping the community safe is the Partnership’s number one priority, so we’ve made the tough decision to cancel our typical “Fire in Ice” event programming this year.

The following activities are canceled for 2021:

Ice sculptures and live ice carvings

Fire performers

Ice Bar on the Creek

S’mores and hot chocolate stations

First Saturday is all about shopping and dining, and this experience will be no different on February 6. Downtown Frederick’s small businesses are open and ready to provide you with safe and unique shopping and dining experiences.

This year has been different in so many ways and the support of the Frederick community has been stronger than ever. By shopping in-person or online and ordering food for either onsite dining or takeout, you will help Downtown Frederick businesses sustain during the winter months.

February First Saturday kicks off a month-long celebration of love… love for our small businesses, our love for local and our love for community. Show your love for local by shopping with an independent retailer, eating at a local restaurant, supporting local artists and exploring Downtown Frederick… because where you spend your money matters.
