As a non-profit organization whose mission is to “improve the quality of life for residents of the Town of Easton, Talbot County, and the Eastern Shore by providing arts, entertainment and educational programming”, we take pride in presenting a wide variety of programs. Musical performances, stand-up comedy, opera, theatric performances and musicals, showcases for local talent, kids’ summer camps and educational performers are the core of our repertoire.
The Avalon Foundation also plays an integral role in the community outside of the Theatre walls, hosting events such as the Outdoor Summer Concert Series, the Multicultural Festival, and Easton’s 4th of July Celebration. The Avalon Foundation also runs the Easton Farmers Market which runs from April to December, and also hosts Plein Air – Easton!, the nation’s largest outdoor painting competition and arts festival.
In addition, the Avalon Foundation is home to MCTV (Mid-Shore Community Television), the community’s public access television station that produces over 400 programs a year. MCTV is available to all Easton residents through Easton Cable Channel 15 and Atlantic Broadband Channel 77 elsewhere in Talbot County. In addition to producing both studio and on location programs, MCTV uses 3 robotic HD cameras to film performances on the Avalon stage and takes a direct feed from the sound board for superior quality audio. Many community organizations use MCTV to spread the word about upcoming events and their ongoing work.
