For more than 130 years, downtown Bel Air has remained the “Heart of Harford”, where people shop, eat, live and work. Bel Air is continuing to evolve as a shopping destination, blending the tastes of a new generation with the heritage of the past.
Visitors will find tree-lined sidewalks and a seamless patchwork quilt of old and new architecture. Small, independently owned shops and restaurants combined with year round family events create an authentic hometown experience.
A popular annual event is the Maryland State BBQ Bash which attracts nearly 30,000 visitors from across the country.
Bel Air offers its visitors big-city convenience in a small town package.
