2023 Kent Island Day is on May 20


Join the Queen Anne’s County Arts & Entertainment District and Kent Island Heritage Society for the 2023 Kent Island Day. The event will kick off with opening ceremonies, parade and will feature musical entertainment, food, kids’ activities, and vendors.


The event takes place in Historic Stevensville on Main Street and festivities begin at 10:00 AM.

Kent Island Day is celebrated each year on the third Saturday of May and commemorates the founding of Kent Island. The first English establishment on the island, Kent Fort, was founded in 1631, making Kent Island the oldest English settlement within Maryland and the third oldest permanent English settlement in the United States. The celebration began in 1977 by State Proclamation, which will be read during the opening ceremony.
