It’s really hard to believe it’s almost September already! Here are a few events in this very busy month but a more complete list can be found at the calendar of events part of the Frederick Tourism website. As always, feel free to add in the comments any events that I missed.
September 4th is First Saturday with the theme Around the World in 15 Blocks:
Go around the world in Downtown Frederick on Saturday, September 4th from 5 – 9pm. First Saturday “tourists” can get their passport stamped at participating First Saturday locations.
