2019 Business Appreciation Week - October 7th - 11th

The Biggest Business Appreciation Event in Maryland!

Frederick County’s 19th Annual Business Appreciation week is Oct 7th - Oct 11th. During the week, we will visit more than 120 companies to say “Thank you for your contributions, and for being a part of Frederick County’s business community.” This year’s BAW campaign is “Hometown Business Heroes” so we’re asking our businesses to select their hometown hero.  All businesses visited and mentioned will be featured on our social media channels.

We’ve put together a list of business resources and partner agencies represented during the 2019 Business Appreciation Week as well as an informational flyer on PR Frederick, a press release tool available at no cost to you.
