It will provide information on the annual event.
A new form of marketing for the Great Frederick Fair will be unveiled later this month. The Fair will be launching a new mobile app. "Obviously, there are many apps available out there, and we feel it's one of the best advantages that we can take the opportunity to get more of our information regarding Fair out to the masses of those who are guests," says Becky Brashear, General Manager of the Fair.
The app is scheduled to be launched on June 17th, which is also when the Thursday performer for the 2013 Great Frederick Fair will be announced. Brashear says you can find who by downloading the mobile app.
The app is free at the App Store or the Google Play Store for I-Phone and Droid users.
"Actually, we'll have a schedule of events on there. It will have a map on there that's interactive, where you'll be able to look up various vendors that are here at the Fair. It will quickly show where restroom locations are, educational components, ATM's, all the things folks are looking for when they come to an event like this," Brashear says.
In addition, the app will feature discount coupons for Fair week.
She says the app will also have information on other events that take place at the Fairgrounds throughout the year, including the Frederick Running Festival in early May.
But Brashear says the app will not replace the experience of actually being at the Fair. "After all, there are some things a phone can't do. You can't get the smells and get the feel and get the excitement that's actually here on the Fairgrounds at Fair time," she says.
The app is sponsored by Yellow Cab of Frederick.
The 2013 Great Frederick Fair will be taking place from September 13th through the 21st.
