Artscape 2024

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. Vernon/Bolton Hill neighborhood. In 2019 (the last time Artscape was held), Artscape featured more than 200 artist performers and over 100 visual artists and artisans. 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!

Artscape is turning 40! Join us for this cherished Baltimore arts festival, a gathering that unites art enthusiasts, families, and tourists in a celebration of creativity, culture, and performance. At Artscape, we take pride in presenting a rich tapestry of artists and makers, live concerts, visual arts experiences, performing arts, fashion designers, kid-friendly activities, film screenings, experimental music, comedy, literary arts programming, and delectable culinary offerings. We extend a warm invitation to artists and festival-goers alike to fully embrace Artscape – an entirely accessible, 100% FREE, world-class arts festival situated right here in the heart of Baltimore City. Let’s come together and revel in the arts at Artscape’s 40th anniversary!

A BRIEF HISTORY OF ARTSCAPE

Artscape is AMERICA’S LARGEST FREE arts festival, rocking the cultural heart of Baltimore since 1982, it was designed as an Arts Fair and marketed Baltimore as a cultural hub. The newly developed Meyerhoff Symphony Hall was underway, and to draw community support and stimulate economic development and investment in the area, Artscape was born.


Forty years later the festival has extended its footprint far north of the Mt. Vernon section of the city. Expanding in 2017 to Charles Street, near Penn Station, around the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and the University of Baltimore campus. It featured over 140 artists and makers, live concerts on an outdoor stage, and immersive visual arts experiences.
