2011 Guide to Harford - Arts & Entertainment

Harford County has several events throughout the year that are focused on the arts and the cultural enrichment of the community. Included in this long list of festivities is the annual Harford County Farm Fair, which over the years has generated almost one million dollars worth of capital improvements to the Harford County Equestrian Center. Another highlight of the year is the annual Havre de Grace Parade and Fireworks with a concert in Tydings Park facilitated by hundreds of volunteers.

There are a few dedicated organizations in the county whose mission is to make the arts accessible to the community. Each year, the Harford County Cultural Arts Board oversees the issuance of more than $90,000 in grant money to more than 40 arts and cultural groups through its Community Arts Development, Opportunity, and Challenge Grant Programs. The Bel Air Arts Commission serves as an advisory commission to the town government on matters pertaining to the celebration and promotion of the cultural arts in the town. The Center for the Arts of Harford County provides arts education and appreciation opportunities to all segments of the community from amateurs, cultural enthusiasts and hobbyists, to aspiring professionals and students pursuing careers in the arts.

The center provides professional training, arts events, and continuing arts and humanities education in the form of group classes and individual instruction for students ranging in age from early childhood to senior citizens.
