Fun, and unique local events are at the heart of the Main Street experience.

Nowhere else can you find delightful festivals like Colorfest in Thurmont and the Peach Festival in Berlin, quirky events like the Tricycle Races in Cambridge and the Muskrat Celebration in Princess Anne, and classic family-friendly activities such as the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop in Cumberland and Holiday Electric Parade and Tree Lighting in Westminster.

With so many great events taking place throughout the year in Main Streets across the state, chances are you’re just a short drive from being a part of what makes the Main Street experience one-of-a-kind. But remember, when the event ends the fun doesn’t have to! Be sure to stay for the great shopping and dining on Main Street too.
