Each year, the Decoy Museum hosts an exciting series of events that draw thousands of collectors from across the nation. No matter what your particular interest, our calendar of events offers exciting opportunities to appreciate the unique folk art of decoy carving, enlarge your collection, and support the Decoy Museum!
The Havre de Grace Decoy Museum has made every attempt to present a series of events to educate and entertain our members and visitors. It should come as no surprise that for the last two years our program offerings have been tumultuous at best as the COVID pandemic ebbed and flowed. Publishing an accurate list of events has proven to be one of the most challenging exercises that we have faced. Nevertheless, we have again attempted to establish event listings that will be held at or directly benefit the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum. Please join us to ensure that the folk art of waterfowling and decoy making live well into the future.
