2020 Business Appreciation Week

October 5th - 9th 

2020 + 20 BAW Years + 20 or More Years in Business = The Largest Business Appreciation Event in Maryland! 

2020 marks Frederick County’s 20th Annual Business Appreciation week.  This year’s BAW campaign is “Legacy Businesses,” so we will be recognizing businesses that have been in Frederick County for 20 years or more.  During the week of Oct 5th - Oct 9th, we will virtually visit more than 100 of Frederick County’s Legacy Businesses to say “Thank you for your contributions, and for being a staple and pillar of Frederick County’s business community.”

All businesses visited will receive:

Select businesses will receive:

  • A feature on Key 103, 106.9 The Eagle and 93.5 Max Country radio stations (Tune in for more chances to win!)
  • A “video clip” produced by Manning Media
