IN THE STREET FESTIVAL Date Change

IN THE STREET FESTIVAL MOVING TO THE SECOND SATURDAY OF SEPTEMBER

July 29, 2010, Frederick MD – The 28th Annual In The Street celebration will move from the first Saturday in October to the second Saturday in September. This date change is permanent and the 2010 festival will be held on Saturday, September 11th. In addition, Light the Creek and On the Deck Party events are moved accordingly. Please also note that the On the Deck Party held annually at the Carroll Creek Parking Deck will move to a new, permanent location in 2010 - the Carroll Creek Amphitheatre. The event will be promoted as the “Up the Creek Party.”

The 2010 In The Street festival officially kicks-off Friday, September 10th, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. with Light the Creek.

October is a month packed with events, locally and regionally. Celebrate Frederick wants to give an opportunity for other events to succeed and avoid the competition

September traditionally has warmer weather, with less chance of cold rain

Vendors and organizations that are engaged with other events in early October are now able to be a part of In The Street to help make it more successful
