First Friday, September 1st will feature “ArtWalk” from 5-8 pm, a fun opportunity to see many amazing art pieces in a wide variety of media and styles and all created by talented local artists. This event is an important date for the Leonardtown Arts & Entertainment District as they celebrate their 4th Anniversary of receiving this coveted designation from the State of Maryland.

The artwork will be located at various locations, choose your favorites to vote for and cast your ballot by 8 pm. There will be great prizes as well, see www.stmarysartscouncil.com for details and/or if you are interested in entering a piece that you created (the deadline to register for the art contest is August 18th).

Live music will be featured on The Square from 6-8 pm with Higher Standards – a talented trio of musicians who will provide an evening of traditional jazz accompanied by a contemporary vibe. From 8-9:30 pm will be the all-ages audience participation Drum Circle with the SoMar Drummers.

Come early and stay late for this free, family and pet-friendly event. Bring a chair or blanket to relax and enjoy the music, visit the art gallery receptions, find great specials at the shops & restaurants, and much more!
