Arts and Entertainment (A & E) Districts are awarded by the Maryland State Arts Council. The application process is quite rigorous and these designations are not easily given away, as the economic incentives involved are proven to work if the proposed District has a strong management plan and artistic community. The Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District was designated July 1, 2018.
The success of this application is due to the community and artist support and we would like to thank everyone who has been involved.
Crisfield has all the components to create a thriving A & E District: writers, musicians, painters, poets and a supportive community. We have inexpensive and historic homes and workspace available, and a unique location on the Chesapeake Bay. City officials are committed to the use of the arts as a strong positive force for economic development. But most importantly, we have a community determined to see the success of their town that is committed to an A & E as a way to express and celebrate their cultural heritage and artistic strengths.
A & E planning meetings and 4th Saturday Bay Strolls are open to all. Please consider joining the support for this project with your time, talent, or by becoming a member. For more information or to sign up for the mailing list contact Jen Merritt at 410-968-1333 (Thurs & Fri). To participate in the artist registry, click here.
The Crisfield A & E is managed by the Crisfield Arts and Entertainment District (CAED) Project, a 501 c 3 non-profit, in, in coordination with the City of Crisfield.
