C Street Arts Festival Submission Deadline for Artists Extended!

The submission deadline for artists has been extended to March 16 for the C Street Arts Festival! If you're interested in submitting (and we know you are!) please sign up here!

The Arts Festival will be an outdoor market for artists to display and sell their wares along C Street on Saturday, June 9 from 10a-5p. There is detailed information regarding fees and provisions on the sign up page. We signed up this week for a booth and we are so excited to help with this cause!!!

For those of you who don't know, Marilyn is a founding member of the Laurel Arts District Exploratory Committee, or LADEC. A large portion of Main Street in historic Laurel has been designated as an arts district, and LADEC was formed as a means for the business owners and artists already here to help guide the formation and atmosphere of said arts district. We have had a few meetings and are really excited for all the potential Main Street, using C Street as ground zero, have to offer. We're thinking performance spaces, galleries, coffee shops, indoor and outdoor venues, everything an arts district can and should be. We can't wait to get this off the ground and there will be many more posts in the future regarding this project, so stay tuned!

A few weeks ago, Venus Theatre hosted an event called "See, Get, Give," (see a write up of us in the Baltimore Sun!) in which people gathered to literally cover the walls with ideas and inspiration for the future of Main Street.
