The Frederick Arts Council fosters an environment where the arts flourish in the community through arts advocacy as well as through grants and scholarships.

FAC is also responsible for large-scale programming such as the Frederick Festival of the Arts, Art in the Park, the Public Arts Initiative, Sky Stage, the Community Arts Center, the Frederick Arts Council Art Gallery.

When it comes to advocacy, the Frederick Arts Council serves as a collective voice for all artists and arts organizations in Frederick across all artistic disciplines. We speak in one voice on behalf of the arts community to advance the needs of our vibrant and diverse artists and arts organizations and to raise awareness about the contributions of the arts in Frederick.
