Sailing Through the Winter Solstice Launch Day Party

Sailing Through the Winter Solstice by Color on the Creek

Annually, Sailing Through The Winter Solstice begins in November, when a number of boats, transformed through the creative minds of many Frederick friends, set sail on Carroll Creek.

This year – for the first time ever – we’re making “Launch Day” a party!

If you’ve ever been curious to see how they get all of those boats in there, now’s your chance to see the magic happen! While you’re watching from Carroll Creek Amphitheater, grab some breakfast from Traditional Authentic Mexican Food truck, listen to some tunes and fun facts about the boats – brought to you by Dapper DJs, and check out one of Driven To Cure‘s GT-Rs!


The fleet includes gaff-rigged ketches, yawls, three-masted schooners and pirate ships, moored with their sail outlines, rigging and decks lit up every day from dusk till dawn. If you can’t imagine it make sure to come by and take a look at the amazing flotilla!

Not only are these boats easy on the eyes, they raise money for good causes! Vote for your favorite and you’ll be donating to a selected charity at the same time. Learn more about the organization at
