has it all...
...locally owned restaurants, specialty boutiques, entertainment venues, art galleries, beautiful parks and more. Our walkable, scenic streets appeal to history buffs and Instagrammers alike, and our historic downtown features the offerings of a large metropolis with the personable quaintness of a small town. You’ll find chic boutiques steps away from Civil War landmarks, and whether you’re a foodie or a craft beer lover, you’re always right around the corner from something delicious. Our work is Downtown Frederick’s vitality. Downtown Frederick Partnership is responsible for some of Frederick’s well-loved traditions: First Saturday, Alive @ Five and Movie Nights on the Creek come to mind. While we love our events, the work of the Partnership is bigger than great fun. We offer both façade and interior improvement grant programs to ensure our downtown businesses are updated and fresh. We hold an annual downtown wide cleanup event powered by wonderful volunteers. Our Competitive Edge series features workshops aimed at improving existing businesses and growing their success, bringing dynamic speakers and great information to the business community. They say that the people make the place, and we believe that is true in Downtown Frederick. Behind our more than 800 businesses here in the Main Street area are people with the passion, creativity and heart that help make our community thrive. As a part of our Get It Downtown initiative, the Partnership publishes this magazine to highlight the business owners behind Frederick’s vibrant downtown. These owners truly make Downtown Frederick great. Inside, you’ll learn more about these wonderful people and their businesses in photos and brief overviews of the galleries (Art It), retailers (Get It), specialty stores, boutiques and jewelers (Shop It) and restaurants (Taste It) found in Downtown Frederick.
