Celebrate Frederick: In The Street

In The Street

In The Street

11 AM – 5 PM

For over 25 years the In The Street festival has been held in downtown Frederick. The all day festival, spanning Market Street from Carroll Creek to 7th Street, brings food, fun and entertainment for the whole family.

The festival began in 1983 after major renovations closed Market Street for several months. When the dust settled Mayor Ron Young decided to hold a festival for the entire community to celebrate the re-opening of this prominent downtown area. The Festival was held in the street, so the naming of the event was simple. That first In The Street festival boasted 10,000 in attendance.  Today, In The Street attracts crowds of over 50,000!

After 25 years, In The Street still celebrates the Historic District and highlights the best of what Frederick has to offer.
