Historic Downtown Cambridge, Maryland, an authentic Chesapeake town on the Eastern Shore, is known for its rich history, beautiful buildings, vibrant arts scene, and one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, and services.

Shopping along Mainstreet

Cambridge Main Street will honor Joy Staniforth with the Marjorie S. Lednum Award for Outstanding Volunteerism during its annual Spring Fling fundraising gala on April 25 from 6-11 p.m. at the Cambridge Yach Club.


Staniforth was most recently the owner and operator of Joie de Vivre Gallery at 410 Race Street where she helped to begin the renaissance of downtown Cambridge 13 years ago. Her commitment to Cambridge, its economic revitalization, and her efforts to have Cambridge recognized as an Arts and Entertainment District have fueled enormous efforts to stabilize the economy here.


This is the second year of the Marjorie S. Lednum Award for Outstanding Volunteerism, which is given for extraordinary volunteer contributions towards Cambridge Main Street’s mission of revitalizing and stabilizing the economic environment in downtown Cambridge. It is named in honor of Marjorie S. Lednum, the first president of Main Street and a tireless supporter of Cambridge Main Street.



Join Cambridge Main Street as we celebrate and support our downtown revitalization effort with our annual Spring Fling fundraising gala on April 25 from 6-11 p.m. We'll enjoy the big band sound of Bobby and the Believers as they play Motown classics and modern favorites at the Cambridge Yacht Club. This year's live and silent auction will feature some new attractions, meant to raise money for volunteer programming. Check out photos from last year's Spring Fling HERE.
Tickets are $65 apiece and include one complimentary drink ticket for beer or wine. Keep reading for instructions on how to buy your ticket.


Cambridge Main Street will have a lucky leprechaun hiding downtown in participating stores, and if you find him, you will win a $70 gift certificate. All you need to do is draw a card, and if you find the leprechaun and his pot of gold, you win.


Fortunately, everyone's a winner on Second Saturday, as stores and galleries will feature extended hours and specials. We have several great exhibits in galleries this weekend, and RAR welcomes back an old favorite in style.


Don't miss out on everything going on downtown this Second Saturday.
