Discover Free Fall Baltimore this Month


Love the arts? There are plenty of cultural activities taking place online this month. There is no need to leave the house. The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) announces that Free Fall Baltimore presented by BGE and Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC), is taking place as a hybrid of virtual and small in-person events. 

The annual celebration, held each October in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month, showcases the importance of the arts with free concerts, dance and theater performances, festivals, lectures, workshops, art exhibitions, and special events. Free Fall Baltimore is the perfect opportunity to enjoy Baltimore’s vibrant arts scene. By providing a schedule of mostly virtual programming, Free Fall Baltimore maintains public health and safety while expanding its virtual reach beyond Baltimore City.

catch of the day fish (2)Free Fall Baltimore is still here. And one of our favorite local institutions, Black Cherry Puppet Theater is keeping it alive with two more awesome weekends of performances and workshops at their charming spot in SoWeBo (right across from Hollins Market). This Sunday and next, you can take the kids (or yourself) down to the puppet theater for a free puppet performance of either Billy Goats Gruffkin (that’s this weekend) or The Sultan’s Review (next weekend). Between performances, the company will also offer free puppet making workshops in their outdoor garden. And you don’t need us to tell you that the weather is perfect for that.

Get up & Go! Free Fall Baltimore isn’t over yet!

There’s still time to take advantage of some of the 300+ free events this month that make up Free Fall Baltimore! Up early today? Head down to the Central Library for their Imagination Celebration. It’s the grand opening of their interactive exhibit based on the work of children’s author Maurice Sendak!

And tomorrow is Free Family Sunday at the BMA, where families can explore the museum and enjoy special educational and art-making programs for kids!

Then bring the kids (or not) for the Creative Alliance’s Birds & BUS Block Party this evening. There will be dance, neighborhood activities, and a screening of Hitchcock’s The Birds.

Looking for something a bit more amateur for your weekend cinema? You’re in luck, because it’s National Home Movie Day. The University of Baltimore will screen locals’ home movies today from 2pm-4pm. Bring your own, or just settle in to watch others’.

And don’t forget about the Harbor Harvest Festival tomorrow, where you can get lost in a hay maze, pick a pumpkin, and enjoy all the rest of your fall staples right here in the heart of the city.
