All are invited to get into the holiday spirit at Merry & Bright, a new seasonal pop-up experience premiering this December at Harbor Point from Thursday-Sunday, December 2-12.
Event-goers will be able to purchase their Christmas trees, do some holiday shopping, sip festive cocktails, and maybe even catch a glimpse of Santa Claus, all under the Harbor Point Central Plaza’s canopy of lights. Best of all, every dollar spent at Merry & Bright will directly benefit local non-profit organizations or support local businesses. Merry & Bright will feature two marquee attractions:
The Tree Lot
A live Christmas tree lot will be built on the Central Plaza! From December 2-5, all tree sales will directly support Women Leading Baltimore. From December 9-12, all tree sales will directly support The Be. Organization. The Tree Lot is made possible thanks to contributions by Constellation Energy and the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore.
The Tree Lot will be open on the Harbor Point Central Plaza (1310 Point Street) Thursday to Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The T. Rowe Price Maker’s Market
An open-air, pop-up marketplace showcasing local makers and artisans from around Baltimore will provide shoppers the opportunity to pick the perfect gift, shop local and support small businesses as these talented retailers will keep 100% of the profits earned from their time at Merry & Bright. The T. Rowe Price Maker’s Market will be anchored by The Greenhouse at Good Neighbor, which will be selling holiday wreaths and greens.
“As we look forward to moving into our new Harbor Point headquarters, we’re excited to sponsor the T. Rowe Price Maker’s Market, located in our soon-to-be backyard,” said Renee Christoff, head of Global Associate Engagement and Corporate Responsibility at T. Rowe Price. “Supporting local artisans and small businesses by giving them a prominent space to sell their works, aligns perfectly with our work in the community to expand opportunity for all.”
The T. Rowe Price Maker’s Market will be open on the Harbor Point Central Plaza (1310 Point Street) Saturday to Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Merry & Bright will kick things off on December 2 with a visit from Dogs of Charm City! Treat your pup to some new swag and a tasty puppacino. Merry & Bright will feature traditional holiday drinks for the whole family, as well as signature cocktails from Bar Movement and fun special events, like a Touch a Truck with the Baltimore City Fire Department, photos with Santa, and more. The full retailer list and event schedule will be updated continuously on the Merry and Bright website and Facebook event page.
