The Bel Air Armory, also known as Frederick Ward Park, is a community complex with multi-purpose use capabilities. Three components make up the complex: The Armory building, Frederick Ward Park and Armory Marketplace.

The Armory is available to rent for many types of events including fundraisers, bull roasts, holiday parties, pageants, trade shows, conventions, music / theater / dance performances, reunions, retirement parties, business meetings, bingo, auctions, festivals, lectures and more!

The Armory is also home to several "Town-sponsored" annual events such as the Spring Fling Big Band Dance held in April, the annual Bel Air Film Festival in October and the Authors and Artists Holiday Gift Sale held in December. The area's largest Zumba fitness classes are held in the Armory as well!

The Bel Air Armory truly is the community’s gathering place in the heart of Harford!
