It's safe to say that we're all weary from life under COVID, and as we approach the winter holidays your economic development team here at the City of Frederick has been working non-stop to deliver business grants, pop-up dining, business advocacy, small business assistance, buy-local, and more. While we’ve talked a lot about stopping the spread – one thing we certainly don’t want to stop spreading is holiday cheer and support for our families and local businesses! Keeping the tradition of sharing this special time of year together, the Frederick community is more important than ever. So together with our economic partners at the Chamber, Visit Frederick, Downtown Partnership, and Frederick County OED, we’ve made a list of 25 COVID safe challenges and adventures for Frederick residents to take part in together this holiday season!
As we prepare for the holiday season, please remember our local small businesses and do what you can to help lift them up. Your purchases will make a huge difference for the shop owner and your support will be deeply appreciated. Our small businesses account for a significant number of local jobs, so when we shop for goods, food, and libations at our neighborhood businesses, we are sustaining employment for our whole community. Please consider doing your holiday shopping local this year. Most of the local businesses have online ordering and curbside pickup options.
Hang in there and see how much cheer you can spread. Check out our 25 Days of Frederick
list and don’t forget to post on social media with hash tag #25daysoffrederick.
