WHY IS YOUR TICKET PURCHASE IMPORTANT?  Ticket proceeds fund many free public events throughout the year, including the Frederick’s 4th Celebration, the Sunday night Summer Concert Series, the Thursday morning Summerfest Family Theatre, In The Street, and other Holidays events. In addition to helping fund these events, a portion of the proceeds also benefits beautification and community projects in downtown Frederick. Over the 30 years of this tour, more than $100,000 has been donated to beautify the Frederick community.

2015 proceeds will benefit Easels in Frederick, Flowers Over Frederick and Bonita Maas Park.
