Get out and keep enjoying the summer this weekend before it’s gone. In the city, there’s Dam Jam, a summer carnival or a dog ice cream social. Here are a few more ways to live it up:
Weekend Events Calendar: Hot August Music Festival, Crab Feast at Oriole Park, Muslim Food Fest, Vegan Restaurant Week
This weekend, get out to see some music at the Hot August Music Festival or, for the food-inclined, check out the Muslim Food Festival and Vegan Restaurant Week. There’s also a new jazz club opening on Howard Street, a crab feast on the field at Oriole Park and more. Here’s the full list:
After a brief respite following Artscape, festivals are back in full force around the city. The AFRAM Festival is in Druid Hill Park, while Moonrise touches down at Pimlico and the Baltimore Jazz Festival is at GAME sports bar near Horseshoe Casino. In Parkville, you can celebrate with a festival all about peaches and blackberries, and elsewhere there are crab feasts, block parties and outdoor concerts. Sounds like summer.
For those staying in town, this weekend marks a good chance to live the local life, summer-style. A host of bands are playing the city’s clubs, locals are rallying for peace with fun events for another Baltimore Ceasefire weekend, and there are chances to enjoy delectables in outdoor environs from Vegan Soulfest to Frosé in the Park. Plus, Solange Knowles’ film debuts at Lexington Market.
Redmond “Reddy” C. S. Finney, a headmaster of the Gilman School in North Baltimore for more than two decades and co-founder of two programs to enroll more African-American boys from the city, has died, the school announced in a letter to faculty and students.
Finney died in Northeast Harbor, Maine, where he had a summer home.
For those who aren’t on vacation, there’s plenty of reason to celebrate birthdays this weekend. From Baltimore’s 290th to Union Craft’s 7th, the parties are a great way to show pride in what the city has created. Elsewhere, the big shows include Billy Joel and Camden Yards, and Baltimore-born boxer Gervonta Davis’ title defense at Royal Farms Arena.
It’s been getting hotter all week, so it must mean Artscape is approaching. The big event brings out plenty of crowds, plus there are events happening all around, like Ratscape and PMS (3) Art Market. Stick around when the sun goes down for plenty of after-party events in Station North and beyond.
Weekend Events Calendar: Caribbean Carnival, Maryland German Festival, 20 Years of the Tattoo Museum
This weekend brings an international flavor to the festival circuit, with the Caribbean Carnival, Latin American Folklore Fest and Maryland German Festival offering worldly ways to celebrate outside. Elsewhere, check out jazz in the BMA’s sculpture garden or celebrate 20 years of the Baltimore Tattoo Museum.
Fourth of July has come and gone, but there’s still plenty of summer fun this weekend. There are plenty of reasons to get out and about in the city, including plays, markets, concerts and a free screening of the USWNT’s attempt for World Cup glory. Here’s the weekend lineup:
While “Hamilton” stands alone at the Hippodrome, events elsewhere in town come in pairs this weekend. There are two food truck events Friday night. Divas including Diana Ross and Jill Scott have separate nights at the Modell Lyric. And with Baltimore bands, Outer Spaces celebrates a new record, while Natural Velvet returns home.
