A little about Stevensville

 

The downtown Stevensville area is the heart of Kent Island and a great source of pride and interest for locals and the quaint historic sites and shops are a welcomed attraction to visitors. First Saturdays are a wonderful way for Queen Anne’s County to celebrate our heritage and the small towns that make up Queen Anne’ County. Shopping and celebrating locally supports our area businesses, history and artists.   What is the Historic Stevensville Arts & Entertainment District? A root effort of businesses and artists in Stevensville help to form a designated arts and entertainment district on Kent Island. The district has housed artists for more than 20 years. A large community of artists are members of ART EAST, Chesapeake Art League, the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council and Kent Island Federation of Arts, which will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2013!
