Halloween in Downtown Frederick

Don’t miss all the Halloween fun in Downtown Frederick!

There’s so much to see and do for Halloween in downtown this year: trick-or-treating, Vintage VWs in their best costumes, and a free movie on the creek!

Thank you to our partners at Nexamp for presenting Halloween in Downtown Frederick.

Find them at 30 N Market St with candy, face painting and a solar-powered craft that’s perfect for young scientists!



10am-12pm: On the Saturday before Halloween, Downtown Frederick turns into a trick-or-treater’s paradise! Local business owners provide candy for the best ghouls, goblins, and bananas in town. Find face painting and crafts at 30 N Market St, as well as pumpkin decorating, games and hot cider at 33 E Patrick St. Look below for your Trick-or-Treat map!
