In the Streets Frederick Festival

As some of you may know, the In the Streets festival took place on Saturday, Sept. 9 in Downtown Frederick to celebrate the history of our town and how our community came to be.

For 40 years this has been a part of Frederick tradition for residents to bond with their community and have fun while also learning about the history of the city. It all began in 1983 when Market Street was shut down due to renovations for many months. 

After the reopening, the mayor, Ron Young, decided to host a festival where people can buy and sell items while hanging out and having fun, hence the name “Market Street.” He did this in order to get people interested in going back to the street. And it worked! On the day of the festival, up to 10,000 people were there and until this day the numbers are still growing. As of now, over 75,000 people come to the festival to celebrate.

Here are some questions and answers from your peers.

Q. As someone who’s been to In the Streets, what’s something unique about it that you can share with others?

  1. Cameron Lee: “I always love to walk around and see all the vendors and local businesses. My parents really enjoy the asparagus fries from the stand outside of Isabella’s restaurant.”
  2. Mr. V: “It’s a really good way to introduce yourself to a lot of great restaurants and shops.”

Q. As someone who’s never been to In the Streets, what’s something you’re excited for or hope to see?

  1. Connor Shores: “I lowkey wanna hear some cultural music.”
  2. Jack Peng: “Some good traditional food would be nice.”

These are some great answers. But one answer we all want to know is “Will you be coming to the next festival?”
