June 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.


June First Saturday is presented in partnership with Lilypons Water Gardens and  T-Mobile. Thank you for supporting local!
