At the inaugural Frederick Fall Festival, everything that you see and hear – from music to art, beer to food – will be from Frederick.
Flying Dog Brewery and Frederick Playlist announced plans today to bring the largest showcase of Frederick-based musicians, artists and vendors to the city’s historic downtown on Saturday, October 10. Internationally-acclaimed J. Roddy Walston and the Business (guitarist Billy Gordon is from Frederick) will perform with opening sets by Heavy Lights, Old Indian and Seaknuckle.
“At Flying Dog, we live and breath local creativity – from the beers we craft to the artists who inspire us,” Flying Dog CMO Ben Savage said. “If there was ever a time to truly establish Frederick as a destination and epicenter of creativity, it is now.”
The grounds of 200 East Art Haus will accommodate thousands looking to revel in Frederick’s finest. In addition to the bands on the outdoor stage, Frederick-based DJs will spin alongside a showcase of local art and tours of the recording studio, with equipment donated by local studios, inside of the Art Haus. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Frederick Arts Council.
“There are a slew of incredibly talented local artists who call Frederick home,” Colin McGuire, founder of Frederick Playlist, said. “This festival is designed to put them front and center, and not require you to drive to surrounding cities to be exposed to them.”
The Frederick Fall Festival will also play host to the release of a compilation album featuring new, original songs by a dozen Frederick-based bands all recorded at the Art Haus studio over the past six months.
Tickets to the Frederick Fall Festival are $25 and available now via MissionTix.com/FrederickFallFest. The show is 18 and older. 200 Art Haus is located at 200 East Patrick Street in Frederick and gates will open at 4 pm.
