Festival of Arts (copy)

The annual Festival of the Arts celebrates artists and invites thousands to downtown Frederick.

2020 will mark the 27th year of one of Frederick’s most prestigious art traditions, the Frederick Festival of the Arts. Presented by the Frederick Arts Council, it’s three days of wall-to-wall art (and a little bit of music) all along Carroll Creek.

Among those transformative artworks at this year’s event will be an installation at Sky Stage created only for this year’s Festival of the Arts by Amy Boone-McCreesh, who “specializes in mixed media works and pieced objects,” according to the arts council website.

Still, for those hoping to focus more on the visual aspect of things throughout the event, have no fear — there are reportedly more than 120 exhibitors set to display their work throughout 2019’s installment.

With more than a quarter of a century behind it, Frederick’s Festival of the Arts hopes to keep its selections as powerful and illuminating as ever.
