2018 Business Appreciation Week - October 15th - 19th

The Biggest Business Appreciation Event in Maryland!

Frederick County’s 18th Annual Business Appreciation week is Oct 15th - Oct 19th. 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 “Spread the Love for Frederick County Businesses” so we’re asking our businesses to tell us what local businesses they love most! All businesses visited and mentioned will be featured on our social media channels.

Stay Connected with Business Resources

We’ve put together a list of business resources and partner agencies represented during the 2018 Business Appreciation Week as well as an informational flyer on PR Frederick, a press release tool available at no cost to you.
