  1. The Arc of Frederick County is hosting its 2nd Annual Festival of Holidays generously sponsored by Rager, Lehman, and Houck. It will be held on November 28th from 2-5 PM. There will be a catered reception, beer/wine tasting, dessert tasting, and an old time photo booth. Tickets are only $20.00 each, and it’s a great way to bring in the holiday season! All proceeds from this event directly benefit those with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Frederick community. If you have any questions, contact Shauna – 301-663-0909 x 40.


  2. The FREDROCK Local Music Festival is this Saturday, November 6th from noon to midnight at the Frederick Moose Lodge in downtown Frederick, MD!

    24 of Frederick’s best bands will be performing all day and into the night at Frederick’s biggest monthly gathering of music lovers.

    Our mission at FredRock is to support local music, provide a safe venue for young musicians and fans to enjoy live music and most importantly, establish a network to connect local fans, bands and visual artists to make sure all that is beautiful in Frederick has a chance to survive and prosper. We have already done amazing things in our short one year history. Bands are no longer forced into playing at bars or out of town due to a lack of appropriate music venues. We have truly created a music community in Maryland.

    And best of all, we raise funds and awareness for good causes by giving portions of our proceeds to charity. This month, I will be supporting TASAAGA, a Ugandan AIDS relief organization.
