Catonsville was designated Baltimore County’s first Arts & Entertainment District in 2019. Here you can discover the sound of creativity and community. This central Maryland destination boasts a charming small-town atmosphere, just minutes from the big city. Arts, culture, dining, shopping, and entertainment along Catonsville’s walkable Frederick Road attract families, creative professionals, college students, and regional tourists alike. The town’s musical reputation is also a metaphor for Catonsville’s authentic and eclectic spirit — a familiar rhythm of local shops and friendly neighbors; harmonies of historic and contemporary; artistic melodies hidden around every corner.
