The President’s Letter
I hope everyone has had a great summer! School is almost in session, the days are beginning to become shorter, and your Chamber has two daytime events on the schedule.
The Catonsville Arts and Craft festival is on Sunday, September 9th. Once again, the vendor spaces are completely booked, and that means you’ll have a wide variety to choose from. A landmark event for over 40 years, The Catonsville Arts and Crafts Festival drawls artisans from Maine to Florida, showcasing one-of-a-kind paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, fabric creations and more. On the Sunday after Labor Day, each year, the main street of town, is closed to traffic, and opened to shoppers from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is always free. To make the Catonsville Arts and Crafts Festival a true all day event for the whole family, we offer live music, a wide variety of food and unique beverages, and a kid zone with children’s activities.
Just in time for Fall, we are partnering with The League of Dreams Foundation. This new “Fest On The
Field” event, will be held at the Christian Athletic Association’s Park, located on Ingleside Avenue in Catonsville on Sunday, October 7, at 2 PM. Just like a Frederick Road Fridays’ event, we will have a live music, offer beer and wine, and have food vendors. We’ll also include a kid zone with children’s activities, and corn hole for adults. Proceeds will benefit the League of Dreams’ mission to provide all individuals, regardless of physical or mental ability, the opportunity to experience the joy, challenges & personal growth from playing the great games of baseball & softball. I hope to see you there!
See you around the Ville.
