February offers a chance to celebrate and learn about the history of African Americans. Despite the distance between us, this year offers plenty of unique lectures from Baltimore institutions. This weekend alone, speakers discuss a legend of the swing era, railroad porters and historic sites in rural Baltimore County. Plus, there are a few options for streaming concerts from local clubs and a new theater production.
Escape to the country this weekend and enjoy some Sweetheart Shopping at Star Bright Farm for this Valentine’s Day. The warm and welcoming barn provides a cozy atmosphere as you peruse personal gifts, sipping on bubbly and enjoying the moments. A shopping experience that is a match made in heaven.
10 Virtual Events This Weekend in Baltimore: The Take-Out Get-Down; Romantic Music; West Baltimore Ruins
Once again, it’s time to spend at home a day that would normally have big plans and packed restaurants. Fortunately, Baltimore venues have a few options for giving Valentine’s Day at home some romance, or fun. Plus, a chance to learn about a new book, new beers and learn about memory.
There’s no question: Virtual events aren’t the same as an in-person experience. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being in the room with others, and having a chance to chat with some of those fellow attendees before and after the program.
One advantage of the virtual format, however, is that local organizations can host personalities from wherever they might be, without having to come to Baltimore. It’s local meets global. That’s especially apparent this weekend, as Baltimore organizations bring us live streaming concerts and talks, and a benefit for local restaurants brings together numerous entertainment and sports figures. Plus, Baltimore CeaseFire weekend returns.
The long winter of virtual events remains this weekend, but there’s good news: We’re seeing more variations and creative approaches to keep annual events alive. This weekend, revisit H.L. Mencken’s last hours, check out gallery openings and take a polar plunge — all from home.
It’s the final countdown before the holidays, but COVID-19 cases are raging and restrictions are at some of their most stringent. So we’re just gonna have to make due and celebrate the best we can, with drive through events, self-guided tours and virtual gatherings. Check out some events around the city and region:
