How to Participate

Participating restaurants must provide a special prix fixe menu during Frederick Restaurant Week (March 1-7). Unique dishes are encouraged! Restaurant Week diners are looking for multi-course meals at appetizing prices, so your prix fixe menu must feature a minimum of 2 courses, with 2-5 options per course. Restaurant Week menus can be offered for indoor dining, outdoor dining and/or to-go! Menus are due by February 10.


Frederick Restaurant Week will be promoted by our presenting partner The Frederick News-Post, in addition to limited out-of-county advertising paid for by Visit Frederick. Restaurant Week is also a cross-promotional effort between Visit Frederick, partnering Main Street programs and all participating restaurants. Social media promotion surrounding the event generally reaches upwards of 35,000 people.
