June 2009 Events in Frederick County

The end of May is suddenly here and June has sort of snuck up on me.  Here are a few events to get you started.  As always, feel free to add your event in the comments section.  For a more thorough list, check out the events calendar at the Frederick Tourism website.

First Saturday is June 6th.  This month’s theme is I Art Downtown Frederick.

Enjoy exhibit openings, guest artists, and live entertainment designed to showcase the best of Downtown Frederick the First Saturday of every month. I ART Downtown Frederick includes works of art created LIVE on the downtown sidewalks by I ART Painters and performance artists entertaining the crowds. 5 – 9pm.

The Frederick Festival of the Arts is the weekend of June 6th and 7th.  From the arts council website:

The 16th Annual Frederick Festival of the Arts will be held June 6 and 7th on Carroll Creek in Historic Downtown Frederick, Maryland. This Juried Fine Arts and Craft Festival will host over 115 visual artists from around the country. The Festival will also include top-notch performing artists and children’s activities. This year festival admission is FREE to all!

Alive @ Five has two dates in June.  June 11th is Bo Weevil & Rottin’ Cottin’ (blues) and June 25th is ilyAYMI (acoustic folk rock).

Summer Nite Cinema (June 6th) and the Summer Concert Series (June 14th) both start.

The Frederick Keys are home for several series in June and there are lots of fireworks nights scheduled this month.

Linganore Winecellars is having a Rock ‘n’ Roll Festival the weekend of June 27-28.

Summerfest Family Theatre begins in June at 10:30 on Thursdays at the Baker Park Bandshell.  I’m not sure what the exact starting date is because the tourism website says June 4th but the Celebrate Frederick website has the schedule beginning June 25th.  I’d be more inclined to go with the schedule on the Celebrate Frederick site.

From a modest beginning highlighting three programs throughout the summer, the series has grown to feature eight, full-length performances by some of the most sought-after children’s performers in the region.  Kids’ sensations Laurie Berkner and Milkshake have both been part of the series, exposing more children than ever to the magic of the performing arts.
