Catonsville- the Art Beat of Maryland


In 2002, the Maryland General Assembly designated Catonsville as, "Music City, Maryland" in honor of its rich music heritage and abundant music resources including music speciality shops, businesses and performance venues. 

In 2020, Baltimore County Government and the Baltimore County Arts Guild sought and received designation for Catonsville as Baltimore County's first Arts & Entertainment District.
