For the second time in two years, just as most businesses had reopened from the floods in 2016, Ellicott City’s Main Street was once again the victim of heavy rains that devastated the area last spring.

To help these businesses get back on their feet, Mayor Craig A. Moe and the City of Laurel’s Economic and Community Development (ECD) Department, along with Ellicott City Partnership, invite you to the Main Street Block Party on August 17, 2018, from 6:00 – 9:00pm right in our own Main Street district.

C Street will be the place to be to enjoy music, take part in an art workshop, purchase from vendors, delight in kids activities, munch on delectables from food trucks, participate in raffles and more!

This event will be free and all money raised from vendors and raffles will benefit Ellicott City. If you have a unique arts or crafts business and would like to be a part of this event, ECD is still accepting vendor applications. Email Leigha Steele at [email protected] for more information.

Make sure you mark your calendars for August 17th and help support our neighbors to the north as they work to get their businesses back up and running!
