One day is not nearly enough to explore it all

Street FestivalWicomico County, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, has the Chesapeake Bay on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other - a perfect spot for people to enjoy - and the arts here thrive on our landscapes. Salisbury is our biggest town, with big city offerings and small town charm.  Wicomico County is just a short stop on the way to the southeast Maryland coast, but people are discovering that one day is not enough to explore everything we have to offer!

Our arts offerings include the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Salisbury’s ArtSpace, university art galleries, a Symphony Orchestra, Community Players, Chamber Singers, and the Eastern Shore Ballet. Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council (SWAC) is dedicated to accessibility of the arts for all and has been fundamental in the downtown revitalization of Salisbury, creating annual family-oriented events, such as the River City Arts Jam and Classics for a Cause. And in the heart of downtown, Salisbury’s A&E District hosts regular Fridays@5, monthly themed Third Fridays events, and First Saturdays throughout the summer as well as a Downtown Festival in June and a Ball Drop on New Year’s Eve.
