Celebrate the arts in the Seafood Capital of the World, on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay! Crisfield has an engaged artist community in a stunning natural setting with the best sunsets in the world. Artists, nature lovers and architecture buffs come to Crisfield for the affordable and historic homes and workspaces. The Crisfield Arts  & Entertainment District  celebrates maritime cultural heritage and artistic strengths. We invite you to join us.

Maryland’s Arts & Entertainment (A&E) Districts help develop and promote community involvement, tourism, and revitalization through tax-related incentives that attract artists, arts organizations, and other creative enterprises to towns and cities across the State. The Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District was designated by the State of Maryland on July 1, 2018.  The non-profit Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District (CAED) Project is the City and State recognized entity for the management of the Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District.


A & E Planning Meetings are open to all. Please consider joining the support for this project with your time, talent, or by becoming a member. For more information or to sign up for the mailing list please email
