Out & About

P. Buckley Moss’s “Frederick In-Spire-Ation” will be released September 4.

The kids are back in school and the evenings are getting cooler, but there are still plenty of reasons to get out and about in the Urbana area this month:

In the Street

For over 25 years the In The Street festival has been held in downtown Frederick. The all day festival September 11, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. from Carroll Creek to 6th on Market 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 reopening 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, and 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. With the Friday night spinoff Light the Creek Fundraising Concert and Annual On the Deck Party moving Up the Creek, the festival continues to grow.
