Chestertown’s Arts & Entertainment District was certified in 2015 under a program administered by the Maryland Department of Commerce and the State Comptroller’s Office. The District encompasses 51 acres of the historic downtown area, stretching from the Chester River waterfront to Mill Street. It offers state and local tax abatements for qualified artists who create and sell their creative works in the District and for property owners who build or renovate structures for qualified arts purposes.

The A&E designation highlights the importance of the visual, performing and literary arts to the Chestertown community, and their positive impact on quality of life. Arts patrons visit downtown galleries and performing arts venues to be entertained, enlightened, challenged and inspired. They stay to enjoy fine dining, shop in independently owned boutiques, stroll historic tree-lined streets, and explore the natural beauty of the Chester River.
