This Week: August 1

August is here and though the end of the summer might be slowly appearing on the horizon, the fun in Downtown Frederick is far from over. Check out what we've got going on this week!

Tuesday- Levitt AMP Frederick Music Series
Week seven of the Levitt AMP Frederick Music Series brings you jazz vocalist Christiana Drapkin and her D.C.-based group. From jazz standards to bebop to romantic ballads to Brazillian rhythms and more, Christiana will make your Tuesday night sizzle.

Opening the show on Tuesday will be the Nauseous Hippos, a classic rock band channeling inspiration from the likes of Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, and Jimi Hendrix. What's really impressive about the Hippos? All five members are between the ages of 12 and 15.

Nauseous Hippos play at 5:30; Christiana Drapkin Jazz Group goes on at 7:30pm.

The Levitt AMP Frederick Music Series is supported in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private family foundation that empowers towns and cities across America transform neglected public spaces into thriving destinations through the power of free, live music. Learn more at

A huge thank you also goes to Frederick County Public Libraries, Frederick Playlist and the Delaplaine Foundation for making this series possible.

Thursday- Free Yoga on the Creek
Join Sol Yoga at the amphitheater for a free morning yoga practice at 7am. The hour-long class is open to all skill-levels. Bring your own mat!

Thursday- Stitch by the Creek with the Knot House
Knitting circles are made cool by our friends at the Knot House. Bring your knitting and/or crocheting supplies and Stitch by the Creek! 9am-11am at the amphitheater. 

Thursday- Alive @ Five
Last year, Downtown Frederick Partnership had the pleasure of working with Dale & the Z-Dubs when they played at the Levitt AMP Frederick Music Series. Almost exactly a year later, they're back and, well, it's going to be awesome. This high-energy reggae band puts on a show you won't forget. So, as always, come on out for great music, cold drinks and a guaranteed fantastic Thursday night.

An added bonus? Our friends and Alive @ Five presenting sponsor CARE Veterinary will be pouring beer, selling tokens and greeting you at the front gate as part of their volunteer takeover. So say "hello" and be sure to thank them for making Alive @ Five possible!

21+ only; $5 entry fee. Cash and cards accepted. Proceeds from Alive @ Five benefit Downtown Frederick Partnership, and are reinvested right back into projects that make Downtown Frederick a better place. A happy hour you can feel good about!
