Frederick has many events. So many, that Celebrate Frederick had to come up with something special in creating the Frederick Wine Festival.

“The idea itself came up several years ago at a Board of Director’s retreat that we had for Celebrate Frederick,” said Jennifer Martin, events coordinator for Celebrate Frederick. “We were thinking of some new things that we can do that can fill sort of a void in the event season here in Frederick. There are so many events that take place in Frederick all the time. So to find a hole in that event season is a challenge. Of course, it took a lot of groundwork finding strong partners to work with us to make it a really strong event.”

Ridiculous. Are these people for real? How high brow (elitist) are they trying to be?
Wine pairings for kangaroo?

(Women speaking) "Sure, honey. Let's go out tonight and get some kangaroo." Come on. How many people actually do that? The restaurant that had that fare already closed, which I knew it would when it was first advertised that it was going to open.


The Aborigine natives of Australia make their own wine and eat kangaroo meat, also.


I'm sure. They are from Australia and in a different culture. Not so in Frederick.
