Artscape Is Back! September 22-24

Artscape is AMERICA’S LARGEST FREE outdoor arts festival, rocking the cultural heart of Baltimore since 1982. The festival was designed as an Arts Fair that marketed Baltimore as a cultural hub, generated local community support for the arts, and stimulated economic development and investment in the Mt.

Today’s Artscape will include visual art exhibitions, main stage music performances, culinary delights, community gathering spaces, immersive family & youth experiences, an artist marketplace, and so much more!
