The staff and volunteers working on the Imagine Hagerstown programming are walking a very fine line at the moment – along with all the other organizations hoping their events will take place this season. We are continuing to plan amazing events, while simultaneously monitoring orders from the Governor and keeping track of what other event organizers are doing. The truth is – we don’t have a crystal ball and cannot predict what will happen in the next month, two months, or year.
Don’t think us naïve or that we have our heads in the clouds, but we want to share the vision with you! We hope beyond hope that it will all take place, one way or another! But if it doesn’t, we are certain that other ideas will rise to the surface, that other manifestations of the creative spirit will appear, and that together we will IMAGINE HAGERSTOWN anew.

We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge that we are in challenging times right now. Yet we continue to plan our upcoming Imagine Hagerstown Fourth Friday Music Series (May 22, June 26, July 24, August 28) and the Imagine Hagerstown Saturday Street Festival (September 26). WE MUST. Those who work in the creative fields are at their core optimistic: they imagine what can be when there is nothing.
The City of Hagerstown is open, operating, and monitoring the situation. If necessary, events will be postponed. We will post updates on social media and on the City website as they become available.
The Imagine Hagerstown events are important to the vitality of our City. They bring us together in community while driving the economy. Our local businesses and restaurants will need all the love we can give them once we get past this current situation.
Please maintain your vigilance in following all the guidelines for handwashing, social distancing, disinfecting, and staying home if sick, so that we may once again gather in physical community in a few months.
Be well! Until we meet up, make music, draw, paint, sing, write, tell stories, and dance!
Imagine Hagerstown: Saturday Street Festival
