Save the date! Sunday September 25, 2022, heralds the return of the Annual Dorchester Center for the Arts Showcase event. The event takes place from noon until 5:00 p.m. along historic High Street in downtown Cambridge, all the way to the waterfront. This art walk and street festival is DCA’s way of “Celebrating our Creative Community,” and is a family-friendly free arts event, held rain or shine. DCA will be following all current CDC guidelines for safety during the event. The generous support of the Nathan Foundation, the Maryland State Arts Council, and the staff and volunteers of DCA have helped present this event for over 40 years.
There will be several stages for music and dance during the event, with the Eastern Shore Dance Academy kicking things off with their noon performance in front of the Dorchester County Courthouse. Food vendors will be offering up delectable Eastern Shore cuisine while local restaurants will be open for business. This juried event displays paintings, photography, ceramics, drawing/pastel, fiber/textiles, glass, jewelry, leather, wood, metal, mixed media, printmaking, sculpture, and found object; even heritage arts such as blacksmithing. Artists and artisans travel from all over Delmarva, with dozens returning to the event year after year, to fill this beautiful waterfront venue with creative and unique artwork for show and sale. Visitors will also find an array of booths featuring area nonprofits, on hand to share their excellent work with event visitors.
Food, artisan, and nonprofit groups interested in participating in Showcase are invited to call 410-228-7782, stop by 321 High Street in Cambridge, or email [email protected], and an application will be provided.
