The thick Baltimore summer heat is here… that must mean it is about that time for Artscape! What is Artscape you say? It is America’s largest FREE arts festival. I can’t even begin to tell you all the awesome music, food, arts, crafts, etc etc etc that they have going on there. You must go and experience it for yourself. Plus, it is some pretty amazing people watching. I love people watching (creep alert). Artscape is located in the Station North/Bolton Hill/Mount Royal area near Penn Station. It fills over 13 city blocks full of fun stuff to see and hear ALL weekend. Go wander, I promise you will not be disappointed.
If you are looking for more of an escape from the city (and some of the heat), you can head out to Linganore Winecellars in Mount Airy. They are hosting their Reggae Festival on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.
Also this weekend, The Charmery is set to open in Hampden on Saturday! The Charmery will be serving up happiness in the form of hand-crafted icecream. I’m intrigued by the Caramel Old Bay flavor. Must try this.
And if you are looking for a different type of fun, you know, like capital letters type of FUN. The Band FUN. will be coming to Merriweather Post Pavillion on Saturday night. Go get your dance on in the outdoors.
You might even find crazy contraptions like this at Artscape. Enjoy, Bmore!
