On Saturday, April 9, local theater company ArtsCentric will bring together artists, community members, and local organizations for a block party in Remington.

The outdoor festival – BMORE ArtsCentric! – will feature live music, an artisan marketplace, local food and beverage, and visual and performing arts.

“We are delighted to bring this outdoor festival event to the Remington community and are excited to help bring local businesses, patrons, and the arts community together in a way that only ArtsCentric can,” Chrissy M. Thornton, executive director of The Myositis Association and chair of the event, said in a statement announcing the festival.

ArtsCentric was founded by twelve young artists in 2003. The nonprofit focuses on artistic programming, workforce development, and education.

The organization, comprised of artists, musicians, educators, composers and playwrights, produced the nation’s first African American cast production of “Chicago.” The group also produced “Dreamgirls” at Baltimore Center Stage during the 2021 holiday season and Jason Robert Brown’s musical “The Last Five Years.”

BMORE ArtsCentric! will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on W. 26th Street between
N. Howard Street and Huntington Avenue. The event will be free of charge.
