Programs & Events
The Caroline County Council of Arts, in partnership with the Caroline County Public Library with production support from Caroline Recreation & Parks, brings you Friday Nites in Caroline, a performing arts series offering a rich variety of entertainment to the residents of Caroline County from October to March each year. These free performances are held at library and school venues throughout the county, and offer fun for the whole family! From brass, jazz, blues and classical musicians to comedians, dancers, circus acts and more, these critically acclaimed performances are a well worth seeing. This free series is brought to you with support from Tri-Gas & Oil, Best Western Denton Inn, and the Maryland State Arts Council.
This series, offered by the Caroline County Council of Arts, features local artist demonstrations and art activities at Denton Artsway in downtown Denton. The Artsway is located on Fourth Street, between Market and Gay Streets in Denton. This program is typically held on the second Saturday of the month at either at The Foundry community arts gallery (401 Market St.), FACES (7 N. Fourth St.) or at the Community Demonstration Garden (behind FACES). Be a part of the creative process and engage with artists...from painting canvas to pumpkins, creating jewelry to wreaths, there's something for everyone to enjoy!
