Weekend Events Calendar: Ice Festival, Orchid Show, Baltimore Restaurant Week, theater openings and more
The forecast is calling for snow this weekend, but there’s still plenty of reasons to venture out, like festivals featuring creative takes on ice, seafood and German culture. Or, head to the Parkway and sing along with Queen. Here’s the weekend schedule:
As we start off 2019, take a look at some of the work being created in the city, whether it’s public art or SpongeBobs. Or, take in a regularly scheduled dance night in the neighborhood. On Sunday, the attention turns to M&T Bank Stadium for the Ravens’ playoff return.
It’s the weekend between the holidays, and the celebrations keep rolling. Kwanzaa arrives in Charm City with a special celebration. Elsewhere, laugh off the Christmas spirit or dance your way into 2019.
It’s about the time of year when people start getting their lasts in–last-minute shopping, last turns of the year and last looks back. There’s plenty of that this weekend, whether it’s a final holiday market or a tree lighting. But mostly, it’s a time to celebrate. So get dressed up for a winter formal or take the time to gather with others to sing the carols. It’s all on the menu this weekend:
The final countdown before the holidays is here, and that means it’s time to celebrate. Head out to SantaCon, see lots of tubas perform the seasonal hits or enjoy a Harbor Spectacular on Sunday. For those still shopping, there are plenty of art markets and spots to grab goods from local creators. And in the welcoming spirit, don’t miss the Refugee and Immigrant Arts Feast on Sunday. Here’s the rundown:
For those who haven’t started their shopping, this weekend might be a good chance to give it a try. Baltimore’s neighborhoods are adding a festive mood to finding a gift, from Federal Hill to Highlandtown. And there are plenty of makers markets in breweries, gardens and other public gathering points. Elsewhere, celebrate the Rawlings Conservatory’s 130th anniversary or don a mask for Krampuslauf in Hampden.
To honor the 130th anniversary of the historic Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory & Botanic Gardens, the Friends of Rawlings Conservatory, in partnership with the City of Baltimore and the Baltimore Department of Parks and Recreation, will host an exclusive cocktail party in the Conservatory on Friday, December 7, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Themed as “A Glistening Winter’s Evening in Baltimore’s Glass Palace,” the event will feature crafted cocktails, festive hors d’oeuvres, and live jazz. The evening also coincides with the Conservatory’s annual holiday poinsettia display, which will showcase a spectacular variety of that signature holiday flower, complete with a grand decorated tree. Tickets to this event are available for a minimum donation of $75.00 per person and can be purchased here – http://www.rawlingsconservatory.org/130th-birthday-party/. Funds raised by the event will help support to support public activities at this historic site.
