Alive @ Five is a weekly outdoor happy hour in Downtown Frederick featuring live music, beer, and wine every Thursday from May 14-Oct 1.
The upcoming season will feature 21 events, May 14 through October 1, 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.
IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATE (added March 18, 2020)
With Governor Hogan’s executive order prohibiting gatherings of 50+ people (changed to 10+ people on March 19) and the recent announcement from CDC recommending the cancellation of these events over the next 8 weeks, Downtown Frederick Partnership has decided to adjust the dates of our 2020 Alive @ Five season. We will still offer 21 events by starting the season on Thursday, May 14 (originally scheduled to begin on May 7) and continuing through Thursday, October 1.
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 downtownfrederick.org/covid-19. Thank you for your support!
