Welcome to the Havre de Grace Arts Collective!

The Havre de Grace Arts Collective is a  501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to build community and stimulate economic vitality through the arts by providing quality entertainment that engages and attracts audiences; offering educational opportunities which nurture learning and creativity; and encouraging synergism among performing, cultural and visual arts groups. The Arts Collective includes the Cultural Center at the Opera House , the Havre de Grace Arts and Entertainment District, and  the Arts by the Bay Gallery.

The Havre de Grace Arts Collective, Inc. is funded in part through grants from the City of Havre de Grace, Maryland State Arts Council, Harford County Department of Community and Economic Development and the Maryland State Arts Council through the Harford County Cultural Arts Board.



To our Patrons referencing COVID 19
The Executive Director, Rebecca Jessop, and William Price, Arts Collective Board President, met with officials of the City of Havre de Grace. After extensive discussions and at the Mayor’s request we feel it necessary to close the Cultural Center at the Opera House  through April 30. All performances will be cancelled or postponed. The closure will be reasserted within the coming weeks once we have further clarity of the situation. We are taking this action in an abundance of concern for the safety of our patrons.

If you have tickets to any Opera House events, you will receive a refund. However some organizations have asked their patrons to consider not asking for a refund but instead donating their ticket. The Arts Collective would greatly appreciate it if you would also consider donating your ticket to our nonprofit. In many cases we will be paying the artist regardless of the cancellation and unable to recoup those costs. The economic impact of these actions will have major effects now and into the future. Anything you can do to mitigate this impact is greatly appreciated.
Please be sure to maintain sanitary guidelines as prescribed by the CDC and local health authorities. Lastly, be kind, be patient we will get through this crisis.
