Frederick Day in Annapolis

We are proud of the buzz about Frederick, which springs from our community’s vibrant, innovative economy and high quality of life. People are taking notice. Frederick has been recognized as one of the Eastern Seaboard’s top places to live, work, and play. Businesses are flocking to our area, including Kite Pharma, whose move to Frederick County was the largest job-creation announcement in the State in 2019. Annually, approximately two million visitors are now spending $1.2 million a day across the county. They come to shop in Downtown Frederick, explore the thriving Carroll Creek Linear Park, tour our Civil War battlefields, visit our national shrines, and more. And our economy continues to grow because of innovative partnerships such as ROOT, infrastructure such as Frederick Municipal Airport, and our highly educated workforce. 

Learn more about The City of Frederick’s major projects to improve public safety, quality of life, and stormwater management. We hope you will stay up to date on our progress.
