See What's New in Old Ellicott City 


December 27, 2019, County Executive Ball Announces Ellicott City “Safe and Sound” Flood Mitigation and Public Safety Plan

Old Ellicott City is open for business. With over seventy galleries, shops, restaurants, service providers, historic sites, free museums, and more there is plenty to see and do. A robust calendar of events offers everything from music festivals, movie nights, gallery hops, courtyard concerts, living history and history exhibits, yappy hours for dogs, trick-or-treat and haunted houses, girls' nights out, artists' demos & competitions, the long-standing Midnight Madness and other holiday happenings. 

Ellicott City's historic district has a long history of strength, growth, and resilience. Many generations of entrepreneurs have called Ellicott City home and the hope of many is that the tradition will continue. Many businesses and residents affected by the flooding on May 27, 2018, and July 30, 2016, continue to call Ellicott City home. Additionally, new businesses are enthusiastically opening in Ellicott City on a regular basis. 

Visit Howard County and the Ellicott City Partnership stand committed to working with their Howard County partners and constituents to build a stronger, smarter and safer future for Old Ellicott City. The Ellicott City Partnership is currently accepting financial donations that will be used to assist merchants and residents with flood recovery, click here for more information.
