Coming, July 1, 2020...
The Catonsville Arts & Entertainment District, the State's newest A&E District, will quicken the ArtBeat of the Catonsville Main Street community. An infusion of performing and visual arts will build on our Music City, Maryland traditions and create unique experiences for residents and visitors, alike. Located just a quick hop off of the Baltimore Beltway, it's the place to find that perfect vinyl to add to your record collection, to pick out the sweetest 12-string guitar and learn how to play it. Click here to see the district map and a list of fun things to see and do.
Stay awhile and catch some live music and fine arts at dozens of Catonsville's local shops and restaurants. Plan a special outing during the summer outdoor music season. Pack a picnic dinner and enjoy a free performance under the stars at the Lurman Woodland Theater or kick off your weekend with friends at a free, Frederick Road Friday concert at the Mews.

The Baltimore County Arts Guild is grateful for the County's lead on the Catonsville A&E. Baltimore County is committed to growing our diverse economy by making strategic investments in our communities. In his FY20 budget address, County Executive Johnny Olszewski boldly declared that the County will work to secure our first ever Arts and Entertainment (A&E) District. That goal will become a reality on July 1, when the Catonsville A&E is officially launched. The Departments of Economic and Workforce Development and Planning will continue to work in partnership with the Guild to create a thriving arts and entertainment presence in Catonsville.
