Check Out Charm City: Weekend Guide

After a short stint in Italy (photos to come), BS is back in BMORE! No better weekend to stick around town than with this beautiful end of summer weather and plenty to do.

On Friday, you can head up to Hampden for the Food Truck Gathering at the Keswick Castle from 5-10PM. Enjoy food from plenty of Baltimore’s best Food Trucks, including Icedgems, GrrChe, Kommie Pig, and more. This will supposedly be the last gathering to be had at the Keswick Castle, sadly, but I am sure they will have something else up their sleeves for Hampdenites.
On Saturday, there are 2 great festivals going on in the city – The Shindig and Hampdenfest. The Shindig is the first annual music festival held at Carroll Park in Pigtown. The lineup includes Joan Jett, Dropkick Murphys, The Gaslight Anthem and more. While people will be rocking out in Pigtown, others will be embracing the eclectic Baltimore culture in Hampden. Hampdenfest runs from 11AM-7PM along the Avenue. Complete with the Great Baltimore Mac-Off, a Waiter race, Hampden Idol and the infamous Toilet Bowl Race down Chestnut Ave. Dare I say this is a better representation of today’s Hampden than the well known HonFest?
Last but not least, Ravens Football is back in Baltimore! The Ravens take on the Browns at 1PM on our home turf. Get your purple on and go cheer them on
