Havre de Grace Arts & Entertainment District
Havre de Grace is the perfect location to create and sell your art. Located at the junction of the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay, our setting has been an inspiration to artists for centuries. Decoy carvers replicate nature, water colorists capture the evening skies over the water and writers find inspiration in the views.
In the Spring of 2007, a group from the arts community led the effort to secure the official Arts & Entertainment (A & E) Designation by the State of Maryland. Because of our strong art community, Governor Martin O’Malley and the State of Maryland awarded Havre de Grace an A & E Designation on July 1, 2008. Havre de Grace Main Street, Inc., a 501 (c ) (3) non profit corporation, oversees the A & E District and administers and promotes the A & E Programs. The tax incentives and credits offered in an A & E District will be another incentive for artists looking to relocate to a supportive art community with many other attractions.
