Dorchester Center for the Arts presents the 42nd Annual Showcase Art Walk & Street Festival, a free outdoor street festival on historic High Street in Cambridge, MD on Sunday, September 22. The event will also serve as a celebration of Dorchester County’s 350th anniversary in 2019, with a heritage village, re-enactors, displays, and more.

This signature arts event is designed to celebrate and foster an appreciation of the arts in Dorchester and surrounding communities, and to showcase the area as a prime cultural destination. From noon to 5 pm, visitors can enjoy dozens of artist and artisan booths featuring painting, sculpture, mixed media, ceramics, fiber art, jewelry, photography, woodworking, and more. New this year will be a plein air “quick draw” when artists create paintings on site in the midst of the festival.

Throughout the afternoon there will be live music, theater and dance performances, and interactive art projects for all ages, as well as food including traditional Eastern Shore cuisine.

Long Wharf Park will include the skipjack Nathan of Dorchester exhibit and free skipjack rides at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm. First come, first served.

For more information, call 410-228-7782.
