Alive @ Five is a weekly outdoor happy hour in Downtown Frederick featuring live music, beer and wine every Thursday from May through September.

The upcoming season will feature 21 events, May 7 through September 24, 2020. Every Alive @ Five takes place from 5-8PM in the Carroll Creek Amphitheater, has a $5 admission and is a 21+ ONLY event.

Alive @ Five is more than just a community happy hour! 100% of the proceeds benefit Downtown Frederick Partnership, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing, promoting and preserving Downtown Frederick, a national Main Street community. Every gate fee you pay and drink token you buy gets directly reinvested into the downtown community.


Interested in playing during the 2020 season? We’ll release the call for bands in December 2019.
