December in Downtown Frederick

December 5, 2017  |  Local

downtownDowntown Frederick, rated by Livability.com as one of the nation’s top 10 downtowns, is also home to nearly 700 businesses or organizations, giving our students the opportunity to get work experience through internships – all a short walk from campus! Come experience downtown Frederick for yourself – especially during the holiday season!

Every Saturday in the month of December, the Downtown Frederick Partnership is hosting December Saturdays! Hot cocoa, carolers, and even a holiday scavenger hunt are some of the many treats that will be available throughout the month in downtown Frederick, located a short walk from Hood’s campus. Students take advantage of our convenient proximity to shops and restaurants, especially during the holiday season! The last December Saturday, on December 23, is appropriately called the “Last-Minute Dash,” where shops will stay open late for those last-minute shoppers to get holiday presents for family and friends. Lights and decorations line Market Street, the main street that runs through downtown, providing a holiday ambiance fit for Hood students and families alike.
