It’s time to explore your own backyard during First Saturday in Frederick! Taking place 5-9 p.m. April 1, this event invites local shop owners and entrepreneurs to stay open late for an evening full of shopping and fun.

The first Saturday of every month is a favorite for many, especially those who are working 9-5 jobs that can’t typically get to some of Frederick's local shops on a daily basis. In addition to shopping, you’ll be able to check out the works of talented local artists. For example, ArtistAngle Gallery is doing a special exhibition of sculptures and paintings by local artists .

To get the full effect from a different perspective, you can hop on the trolley at any of the five stops which include Pistarro’s, Little Pottery Shop, Spin the Bottle Wine Company, Brewer’s Alley and Bravura Arts and Framing. Be sure to grab some friends from Willowdale Crossing and join in on the fun!
