FREDERICK, Md. - Saturday is the 30th anniversary of the “In the Street” celebration in Frederick.

The event was started back in 1983 by Senator Ron Young when he was the Mayor of Frederick. He started the festival so the community could come together to celebrate the reopening of downtown Frederick after major renovations that closed Market Street for months.

The festival will have two beer and wine gardens. Organizers say all six of the local Frederick County breweries will be there.

The first ever “In the Street’ brought nearly 10,000 people to downtown Frederick. Organizers say it now attracts crowds of more than 50,000 and that there will be hundreds of vendors all down Market Street. There will also be entertainment, including four stages for musicians.

“We have four stages of live entertainment this year, two beer and wine gardens. One will actually be a mini brew-fest featuring the local six Frederick breweries in the county, and we have nearly 300 vendors
,” said Jennifer Martin, marketing director for Celebrate Frederick.Nearly everything is free so it's a great time for families to enjoy the beautiful weather. Falls right around the corner, it's a wonderful time to get out and just enjoy downtown Frederick.”

The event runs all day Saturday, starting at 11 a.m.
