  1. June 26 – The Army’s Twilight Tattoo returns to Frederick, bringing patriotic military pageantry to Baker Park, starting at 6 p.m.

    The Tattoo is a journey through the history and service of the U.S. Army, from The Revolutionary War through today.

    Elements of the U.S. Army Band and the Old Guard will take to the field with period military costume, a pipe and drum corps, precision marching and great music.

    The Tattoo seldom performs outside military installations, but Frederick is one of the very few instances they do.

    The event is being sponsored by Fort Detrick, the City of Frederick and the Fort Detrick Alliance.

    Admission is free and all are invited. Seating is on the lawn, so bring chairs or blankets.
