January First Saturday

First Saturday is a day to show your love for local!

Support local businesses by shopping with an independent retailer, eating at a local restaurant, supporting local artists and exploring Downtown Frederick. Where you spend your money matters.

Whether you’ve lived here for years, or you’re a first time visitor, First Saturdays are a great time to discover something new about our beautiful downtown.





January First Saturday is presented with support from Renewal by Andersen




Downtown businesses celebrate First Saturday with their own unique events. From in-store tastings and gallery openings, to artist and vendor exhibitions… there’s always something new to explore! Stay tuned for details about this First Saturday, and visit downtownfrederick.org/events for more.
