What you need to know if this is your first Frederick Art Walk

The Frederick Art Walk is an event which happens at the homes of artists in the Central Frederick Neighbourhood. It’s a community event, selling high-quality hand-crafted artisan works. And we encourage host artists to invite friends, neighbours, and family who are also artists to share their outdoor space. All artisans must be present on the day of the FAW.

Can I be part of the FAW if I can’t be open on Sunday?

  • Yes! You can choose "Open Saturday Only". We will note it on all channels of advertisement.

I don’t want to be outside, but I want to be part of the Art Walk. Can I still take part?

  • We are advertising the Frederick Art walk as an outdoor, accessible event, and people will be expecting that. A lot of our shoppers like having the event outdoors. It's also important for this event to be as accessible as possible. Please keep that in mind as you set up.

My house has space for another artist/I'm an artist looking for a space. Is there a way to connect us?

  • We’ve discontinued the Homeless Artist Registration. But send an email to, and we’ll try to help you out. No guarantees.
