August Director’s Note: Business & Community Go Hand in Hand

What is a business? What is community? Short simple questions that have long complicated answers. But one thing is certain – in Caroline County, business and community go hand in hand.

This month that partnership will be demonstrated in a long-standing event curated by the Caroline County Recreation and Parks and the Town of Denton – Caroline Summerfest. This year’s event – the 33rd Annual – will be held the evenings of August 19 and 20, 2022 in downtown Denton. There will be music and food, stuff for the kids, and fireworks.

Summerfest participants get a chance to support local nonprofits in the best way possible – buying food. Local artisans (many of them are small business owners) perform for an enchanted audience. And the folks (again small business owners) who have side hustles in arts & crafts and nice wares are able to meet their customers one on one in the streets of Denton.

The free festival is a draw for people in county and from outside of the county. The corporate sponsors show their community support by connecting their brands with summer, festival, fun – and Caroline!

We’ve had some hot Summerfest days recently, but hopefully the weather will not prevent you and your family from attending to support your community and businesses.
