As part of our commitment to our community, Antietam Cable Television Productions televises a select number of exciting events each year. The events are chosen for their huge popularity among a vast number of our customers.
Showcase of Marching Bands
Every Autumn, the Showcase of Marching Bands highlights the talents of Washington County high school students. Presented by the Board of Education of Washington County, each band is invited to perform musical selections of their own choosing. Along with fantastic music, each band puts on a spectacular field show!
Alsatia Mummers' Parade
A Hagerstown tradition for over 70 years, Antietam Cable Productions has been covering this event since the mid 1970's. Organized by the Alsatia Club, the parade features a wondrous array of floats, marching bands, dignitaries, antique vehicles, marching units from local business, nonprofit, and military organizations, and of course, mummers. What is a mummer? Individuals who wear elaborate masks and costumes.
The parade takes place in Hagerstown on the Saturday evening closest to Halloween. Antietam Cable televises the parade on a tape-delayed basis the following week.
Western Maryland Blues Festival
Antietam Cable Television is proud to be a corporate sponsor of the Western Maryland Blues Festival, a three-day annual event which takes place in Hagerstown in June. Organized by the City of Hagerstown, it is designed as a nonprofit family event featuring concerts and workshops for adults and children. Most Festival events are free while others have a nominal charge.
As part of our sponsorship, we produce a series of programs which air during the week before the festival. "Western Maryland Blues Fest Week On Antietam Cable" features in-depth interviews and performances from many of the artists appearing at the festival. Music videos and documentaries on the history of blues have also been a part of the shows.
Junior League Basketball All-Star Games
The Washington County area is fortunate to have a group of dedicated individuals and businesses who sponsor Junior League Basketball. The annual All-Star games have been a regular feature every Spring on Antietam Cable Television.
When election time rolls around, Antietam Cable provides complete coverage of area candidate forums which have been sponsored by organizations like the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce.
