East Frederick Rising


East Frederick Rising is a non-profit organization of businesses, residents, forward-thinking leaders; and local, state and government entities, championing the revitalization of east Frederick since 2010. As the area continues to redevelop, we’re here to spark important conversations that will guide this new found growth towards a vision we all see for east Frederick: a community that is vibrant, safe and diverse; where residential livability and commercial opportunities flourish, consistent with the historic character of Downtown, Frederick. Good news is, you too can also be a part of this movement!
