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.
October First Saturday is presented in partnership with Mount St. Mary’s University & SkyPoint FCU. Thank you for supporting local!
