Display Advertising rates

How we do it:
The Main ARTery is wholly funded by your generous support. You can support our mission to expand the reach of the arts within our community by purchasing advertising in our publication.

Why should you do it?
Your advertising dollars are well-spent at The Main ARTery.

LONG SHELF LIFE – each publication features calendar events for a full two months, which means that each edition will linger in the home longer than the average newspaper, weekly periodical or even radio ad.

HUGE audience of distribution – The Main ARTery is distributed throughout the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia & the Quad-state area including counties in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCKS! – Not only will you have a quality advertisement in one of the most exciting local papers with broad appeal BUT your ad can also go on our dynamic website for the same cost!


The Main ARTery is available year-round at over 100 locations in the Quad-State region of West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The counties we serve are Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan Counties of WV, Loudoun, Clarke & Frederick Counties in VA; Washington & Frederick Counties in MD; and Franklin County PA. Free copies are also sent by request at The Main Artery’s web site. We also fulfill Subscription orders.
