Looking ahead to what will be another banner year for the advancement of the preservation movement, Preservation Maryland is pleased to give companies that support our work the opportunity to tell your story to our audience by either developing a joint marketing program with us or by sponsoring one or more of our programs or events.

Each year in May, preservationists celebrate Preservation Month and we’ll host our annual Best of Maryland awards at the historic carousel at Glen Echo Park. In July in Frederick, Preservation Maryland will convene the largest gathering of Maryland’s preservation professionals for the Old Line State Summit that will focus on the concepts of ReUrbanism and sustainable growth for Maryland’s historic communities. Back by popular demand, we’ll close out the year with our capstone Phoenix Rising event at the Baltimore Museum of Industry in October. Together, these events bring together thousands of Marylanders and represent an opportunity to showcase your support of Maryland’s past – and future.
