Great Frederick Fair Traffic

The Frederick Police Department would like to remind citizens of the traffic congestion that is expected around the Fairgrounds during the 2010 Great Frederick Fair. The fair is scheduled for September 17th through September 25th.
Drivers should remain alert to traffic pattern changes as well as signs directing them to the many parking lots utilized for Fair Parking. All traffic pattern changes are designed to ease congestion and direct traffic flow to available fair parking. This includes parking on Highland St., Franklin St., Monroe Ave. and Monocacy Blvd.

Both Police and Auxiliary Officers with the Department will be directing traffic in order to assist with the expected high volume of vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Drivers are asked to remain patient, follow the directions of the officers and utilize caution during these periods of congestion.

Motorists not wishing to attend the Great Frederick Fair should plan an alternate route to avoid the congestion on the east end of Frederick in the area of the Fairgrounds.
