Alive @ Five is postponed until further notice.

The Partnership will not launch its weekly outdoor happy hour series until all stay-at-home orders have been lifted, it is once again deemed safe to allow public gatherings and any necessary event changes can be implemented to ensure the safety of event attendees, volunteers, staff and band members.

Downtown Frederick Partnership encourages Frederick to continue staying at home and to keep following all social distancing guidelines for as long as they are in effect. It takes each of us doing our part to reduce the spread of the coronavirus and help keep our community healthy.


How you can help.

Alive @ Five is presented by DARCARS Toyota of Frederick and Downtown Frederick Partnership. Once launched, the event will take place every Thursday in Carroll Creek Amphitheater, featuring live music, local beer, wine and food from 5-8PM. The event series is 21+ only and has a $5 admission.

Alive @ Five is more than 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.

In lieu of its outdoor happy hour series, the Partnership has launched a GoFundMe page at Help support the Partnership’s work in Downtown Frederick by giving what you can.
