In this post, I’m going to give you free virtual events offered by local Frederick County Maryland businesses.
Because having opportunities to ‘attend’ free virtual events makes life way more interesting, especially during this time!
Free Virtual Events in Frederick Md
Obviously, we’d like to thank each business for offering up their skills and time to keep our community inspired!
It should be noted that I’ve categorized the free virtual events by type.
However, please check the dates as some are just one-time events that are coming up soon.
On the other hand, there are others that will be ongoing free virtual events until social distancing is no longer necessary.
Also, please let us know of any free virtual events being offered by local businesses so we can include them in our list.
This is an evolving list and will be updated as we get the information.

Virtual Shopping & Dining – Support Local
First Saturday Online
Hosted by: Downtown Frederick Partnership
Description: May First Saturday (Mayfest) is on May 2nd. There’s nothing we’d rather do than gather together for music in the streets, late-night shopping and dining. But, it’s comforting to know that we can still extend our appreciation and support to the many small businesses that are the heartbeat of Downtown Frederick. Just in a slightly different way than we’re used to. Join us, as we take First Saturday ONLINE! Tune in right here at any point on Saturday, May 2nd. We’ll have local shopping and dining features all day long. Also, we’ll share ways that our community can band together during this difficult time, and maybe even have a surprise guest appearance (or two)!
