Alive @ Five is postponed until further notice.

We can’t WAIT for a summer that’s once again filled with live music and community events! However, we’re not in the clear just yet. With everyone’s health and safety in mind, Alive @ Five will be getting off to a delayed start this year.

What we know right now: We won’t hold any Alive @ Five events in May or June 2021. Our team will be continually re-evaluating things over the next couple of months, with the goal to kick off the 2021 season just as soon as we can.


How you can help.

Want to put your token money to good use while you’re waiting for the season to start? Donate it at Alive @ Five is the Partnership’s largest fundraising event, and the money raised through gate fees and token sales fund our work throughout the entire year.

Sponsorships and volunteer opportunities will be available for the 2021 season. More information coming soon.


Supporting Local through COVID-19

Currently, many Downtown Frederick businesses remain open on a daily basis, and are taking extra steps to ensure their spaces are clean and safe for customers. We encourage you to continue to support our small businesses during this difficult time. If you need any information about food delivery and takeout, remote shopping options, or how to buy gift cards (spend money now to support local businesses, treat yourself to a prepaid activity later in the year!) — we are constantly updating our website with this information at Thank you for your support!


The 2020 Alive @ Five season was presented by Downtown Frederick Partnership with support from DARCARS Toyota of Frederick.
