Maryland Forward Party

Join us to celebrate Pride Month and collect signatures at Frederick Pride!

Come join us as we celebrate Pride and collect signatures for Forward’s petition in Frederick.

WHO: Motivated Forward Party volunteers

WHAT: Manning a table and talking to people at Frederick Pride

WHEN: Saturday, June 24, 2023 at 9:00am

WHERE: Carroll Creek Linear Park, Frederick, MD

WHY: To collect signatures to make Forward an officially recognized political party in Maryland, and to let our fellow Marylanders know who we are and what we stand for


We will have a table and tent set up along Carroll Creek Park. Setup will begin at 9:00am, and the festival begins at 10:00am. The event lasts until 6:00pm, but we may break down earlier if things begin to slow after 3:00pm. Volunteers are free to stay for either all or part of it. At the end we will do a debrief and perhaps get a beer together at one of Frederick’s excellent breweries.

We will give you access to the Go app to log information for people who sign our petition. We recommend you bring a water bottle and backup power for your phone. You can also pack a lunch if you would like, but there will also be plenty of food vendors at and near the event. We will bring some donuts and snacks in the morning, as well.

Parking: There are several parking garages nearby. The closest ones are the Carroll Creek Garage (44 E Patrick St), the East All Saints Street Garage (125 E All Saints St), and the Court Street Garage (2 S Court St). To see a complete list of parking options in Frederick, visit:

Parking garages are highlighted in red on the map below. Carroll Creek Park is highlighted in yellow. When you arrive, look for our Forward tent or volunteers wearing Forward shirts along the park!
