Hosted by

The Arts & Drafts Summer Music & Arts Festival will once again kick off the summer at the historic Guinness Open Gate Brewery on June 22 – 23, 2024, celebrating the arts and music from the Baltimore County community as well as the DC region. Presented by the Baltimore County Arts Guild (BCAG), the event includes visual artist vendors, live music, hands-on art, fun activities for all ages, and food and specialty beer releases from our host sponsor Guinness Open Gate Brewery.

This is no ordinary arts festival. Regional artists are curated, and hand selected by BCAG to showcase their art across a wide variety of mediums for guests to purchase, including jewelry, pottery, woodworking, glass, acrylic and watercolor painting, mixed media, and much more, plus local vendors.

In addition to visual arts, musicians and bands will be performing on the main stage continually throughout both days. 7,000+ festival goers are expected at this year’s Arts & Drafts Festival. Make plans to attend this fun event and bring your family and friends!


BCAG will announce the selected artists in the coming weeks for the 2024 Arts & Drafts Festival. If you submitted an application, you will be notified by BCAG of their decision.

DEADLINE April 5, 2024.
