The Havre de Grace Arts show is hosting its 59th annual event! One of the region's oldest and best-known fine art and craft events will return to Concord Point and Tydings Memorial Parks this fall.

This juried art show highlights artists, makers, and craftspeople's quality work. The weekend-long event is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, October 22 and 23.

Tydings memorial park has been the site of the Art Show since it started in 1963. Last year, the show moved from August to October for the exceptional Maryland fall weather. The show also expanded to include Concord Point Park last year to ensure ample space for social distancing and new vendors.

The show is excited to announce this year that the Tide Trolley will be available to shuttle guests from their parking location to the event and around downtown Havre de Grace. Guests can enjoy a free tour when they "ride the tide" to the show.

On top of the opportunity to view and shop for artwork, guests at this event can listen to live music from various artists. The live entertainment will feature the Hoppin' Hawks Jump Rope Team on Saturday and Celtic and Maritime music by Charlie Zahm & Tad Marks on Sunday.

The event will feature a kids zone, where kids of all ages can enjoy activities such as face painting and a performance by Professor Horner's Punch & Judy Show.

From the beautiful artwork to the live music and performances, this show showcases the ever-expanding Havre de Grace arts scene. In a statement released by the Havre de Grace Arts Show, they said the event plays a vital role in encouraging budding artists to follow their passions.

"As the forerunner of the Arts & Entertainment district, the art show has always been well known for inspiring and encouraging young artists, which many student exhibitors have continued to become successful, professional artists."

This year's Arts Show is sponsored by Concord Point Lighthouse, MacGregors Restaurant, Harford's Heart, and Maryland Portable Concrete.
