Grantsville Arts & Entertainment District

Grantsville’s arts and culture scene is steeped in history. From 5the 1800s to present-day, we are home to world-renowned Appalachian artists.

The mission of the Grantsville Arts & Entertainment District is to foster inclusive community involvement, tourism, and revitalization through arts opportunities that attract a diverse community of artists, arts organizations, and other members of the creative workforce to this Appalachian mountain ridge where folklife and tradition are rich.

In Grantsville, arts flourish. Fabric traditions — such as quilting, tatting, and crocheting — thrive. Visual artists are inspired by the natural surroundings of Garrett County, where the Potomac, the Youghiogheny, and the Casselman rivers flow through wildlands and scenic vistas. Sculptors and carvers, writers and actors, dancers and musicians and culinary artists all have a place here in the mountains. Come visit our beautiful district, tour the Spruce Forest Artisan Village, visit Little Crossings, hike along the historic Casselman, attend a concert by Music at Penn Alps, visit our studios and shops. Arts are alive and thriving in the A&E District of Grantsville. Come see for yourself!
