Every month I find myself saying “I can’t believe it’s [insert month] yet,” but I really mean it this August. Where did the time go? While it may be the usual hot & humid Maryland summer, it is still sweet, sweet summertime. I’m not quite burnt out enough to be craving the fall weather (until I just mentioned it….) and I still want to enjoy the long days filled with sunshine. If you are looking to fully embrace your summer and try some new adventures, here are a few events happening around Baltimore in August:
Check out one of my personal favorite summer events, the WTMD First Thursday Concert featuring the Revivalists, Brooks Long & the Mad Dog No Good, and the Saint Johns. As the event continues to grow, you can find me heading over early to grab my spot in Canton Waterfront Park.
Are you interested in candle making but have no idea where to start? Check out Candle Making with Knits, Soy, and Metal at The Room in Mt. Vernon. They will bring the supplies, you bring your creative spirit.
Baltimore’s newest marketplace is expanding to the outdoors for ParkFest, Mt. Vernon Marketplace’s first block party. You can’t get much more summer than a block party.
Join the finest our city has to offer at Baltimore Magazine’s Best of Baltimore Party. They will have tastings, cocktails, and live music at the Hippodrome, complete with a swinging 60s theme.
Come together with many of Baltimore’s yogis and yoginis at the Baltimore Free to Breathe Yogathon. Be a part of a one-of-a-kind team yoga experience, all while raising funds to change the future of lung cancer. You can participate in up to 8 hours of yoga with varied intensities and instructors from studios all around the city, while also enjoying acupuncture, hair braiding, metallic tattoos, reiki, henna, foam rolling, cupping, PT, clothing, mala, and tons of healthy foods and drinks. Also, a big thank you to Annie Truax of BmoreToned for hosting a very inspiring sneak peek of the Yogathon at Core Power Yoga. If our morning yoga class is any indication of how the Yogathon will be, I am confident everyone is in for an energizing and motivating day.
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their August and summer!
