WELCOME

Each year, Harford Community College hosts a variety of cultural opportunities from national touring acts to local resident companies, jazz to classical to folk, magic to ballet to musical comedy. With the recent opening of the APG Federal Credit Union Arena, we have the opportunity to bring a series of quality concerts and special events that offer our residents a wide variety of artistic opportunities that are often only available in more urban areas. From month to month and year to year, you never know who will be gracing our stages, but you can be sure they will create an unforgettable memory. Check the various listings to select all of your favorites, but remember many shows sell out fast. Order your tickets online, at tickets.harford.edu, and you can select your favorite seat for any show. Our staff and volunteers want you to have the best possible experience before, during and after events. We hope you will share your suggestions about ways we may improve your experience to make it unforgettable. Please contact the Ticket Office at 443-412-2211 or email snicolaides@harford.edu.
