Tydings Memorial Park has been the site of the August art show since its inception by the late Dr. and Mrs. Gunther Hirsch and family in 1963. Last year, the show moved to a fall date for cooler weather and expanded its footprint adding Concord Point Park to insure space for social distancing for our patrons and participants. As the forerunner of the Arts & Entertainment district, the art show has always been well known for inspiring and encouraging young artists, which many student exhibitors have continued to become successful, professional artists. 

This family friendly event is admission free and overlooks the picturesque Susquehanna River and headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy a free tour of historic Havre de Grace when you “Ride the Tide,” the new city trolley shuttle to the Art Show location. Free parking (and trolley stops) is available all over the city, which includes the large public parking lot located at Pennington Avenue and Juniata Street.

The Havre de Grace Art Show is presented by ArtUnion in partnership with Concord Point Lighthouse. This all volunteer-run fundraiser will benefit the beautiful historic Concord Point Lighthouse and various cultural arts projects. ArtUnion is committed to building a world that engages artists, culture, and creativity as catalysts for community vibrancy, sustainability, prosperity, and inclusiveness. ArtUnion is dedicated to promoting the education of the performing, literary and visual arts. 

Special thank you to our non-profit sponsor Concord Point Lighthouse, the Mayor and City of Havre de Grace, Deborah Dotson-Royer, MacGregors Restaurant, Harford’s Heart, Maryland Portable Concrete and to all our exhibitors, entertainers, food vendors and volunteers.
