The October edition of the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore’s monthly Baltimore by Baltimore festival series will showcase work by Black women artists and makers.

The festival will take place Sunday, Oct. 9, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Inner Harbor Amphitheater, located at Light and Pratt streets.

“This is a tremendous opportunity because often small, local curators are not called on by the city’s larger institutions to curate art experiences,” said spoken word artist Lady Brion, who is producing the October event, in a statement. “So I am excited to show off some of the beautiful talents in the city. And we all know that Black women don’t always get their fair share; that’s why I wanted this edition to highlight their greatness and be a platform for them.”

The festival will feature musical performances by Akilah Divine, Martina Lynch, Lita Lachey, and other artists.

Makers will include self-care products from Ayoni Wellness, face-painting by Selita’s Creative Faces, vintage clothing from Illicit Rag Vintage, and more.

Attendees can also purchase food and drinks from Bar Movement, Flair Cuisine, and Smoked Soul.
