The Great Frederick Fair will launch a free mobile app that can be downloaded beginning June 17 at the app store or Google Play store for iPhone and Droid users.

The app will include both the fair and year-round events and activities at the Frederick Fairgrounds, 797 E. Patrick St.

The app will feature the fair’s schedule of events, an interactive map, frequently asked questions, vendor listings and locations, sponsors and news feed sources for Facebook and Twitter.

The app lives on the user’s mobile device, does not require an Internet connection and also integrates with a mobile device’s camera, GPS and notifications.

Social media planner Karen Crum will send notifications of special happenings during the week of the 151st fair in September.

For details on the app, call the fair office at 301-663-5895 or follow the fair on Facebook.
