Here is a bit more information on the Festival of Greens that K mentioned in the comments of the November Events post. This festival, brought to you by the Frederick Arts Council, takes place from November 20-29th and includes many events that are free to the public. From the Gazette:
The schedule includes performances by Act Too! Children’s Theater Company on Saturday and a Children’s Day on Nov. 28. The free children’s activities provide an opportunity for local kids to make home-made gifts, have fun, and learn a dance lesson by Equinox Dance Company.
The celebration will kick off with The Holly Dance, featuring the Star Spangled Big Band, from 8-11 p.m. Friday. A cash bar and concessions will be offered. Tickets are $7.
Throughout the festival, The Fredericktowne Players will perform their holiday show, “Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!),” beginning Saturday at The Cultural Arts Center.
A holiday artist market will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Nov. 27, showcasing the work of more than thirty regional artists. Attendees will be able to purchase items such as jewelry, paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, hand woven items, and other hand-crafted products. Free gift wrapping will be provided by Downtown Frederick Partnership along with hot chocolate courtesy of The Perfect Truffle.
The event culminates on Nov. 29 with live music from 3-5 p.m. and the close of the silent auction. Successful bidders will be able to retrieve their wreath or tree in time to decorate their own homes or businesses.
Sounds like fun and a great way to get some Christmas shopping done. Who can argue with free gift wrapping?
