In addition to activities on the courthouse green, downtown merchants are also enticing visitors with discounts and specials.  Hosted by the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council, and supported through a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, this is a family friendly day that encourages people to learn more about, and enjoy the richness of, our local resources.
