Art at the Point is On!

Join us Saturday, September 30, 2023!

After a three-year hiatus, the Point of Rocks Ruritan Club is proud to announce the return of Art at the Point. For those new to the area, from 2010-2019 our club put forth a community festival for the purpose of bringing together neighbors, friends, and visitors in celebration of the arts and cultural heritage of southern Frederick County. In 2023, like in past years, the event will fall on the last Saturday in September (9/30/2023)

Our members are dedicated to making #AATP2023 the most successful event to date. If you or your organization can assist with our efforts, please email us at aatp@pointofrocks.org and someone will get back to your shortly.
