Denton A&E District

"The Denton Artsway encompasses 90 acres of shopping, dining, art galleries, public art, and performance space. Please use the map below to find your way around the Denton Artsway. Use the Google Map tools to zoom in and out and pan to view the district."

The Denton Artsway first launched in 2005 in a tiny area of downtown Denton. Over ten years, working with the Denton Development Corporation, we made a big impact within our small footprint. Together, we rescued and restored two blighted buildings that now serve the arts: The Foundry Community Arts Gallery and the Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore. We also welcomed a new artist to the district, Jan Baker’s Fourth Street Gallery.

Leveraging our success, we significantly expanded the Denton Artsway in 2015. It now covers 90 acres of downtown Denton. As a state-designated Arts & Entertainment (A&E) District, the Denton Artsway offers incentives and resources for artists, arts-related businesses, and property owners.

Our vision is to create a vibrant and thriving downtown by attracting artists, arts-related businesses, and other small businesses to the district. We are well on our way, join us!

The Denton Artsway is managed by the Caroline County Council of Arts (CCCA) in partnership with Downtown Denton Main Street (DDMS). Together, we support marketing, programming, and business services within the district. The CCCA Executive Director and the DDMS Coordinator also administer funding for projects within the Artsway. Current projects include three public art installations, Walk Your City wayfinding signage, festival lighting, updated market study, and mini-grants for façade improvements. These projects are in addition to the resources and incentives listed below.
