Artscape 2012 is this weekend, July 20-22!

What is Artscape?

It is free arts festival in Downtown Baltimore with visual arts exhibits, live concerts, performing arts, family events, and more. You can even visit the Meyerhoff for a backstage tour of the BSO!

Over 350,000 people are expected to visit over the three day event this weekend. Hours are Friday 11am-9pm, Saturday 11am-9pm and Sunday 11am-8pm.

The location of the festival is Mount Royal Ave & Cathedral St, Charles St, Bolton Hill, + Station North Arts and Entertainment District area. Be aware there are many roads closed around the festival, so you won’t be able to drive right into it.

The Baltimore Artscape’s website shows the garages that are open, plus public transportation options that will get you close by. The site has very good details about the festival, including how to plan your visit, a map of where to go for certain exhibits, and great explanations of what you will find when you visit.

Enjoy the 31st Annual Artscape in Downtown Baltimore this weekend. A great, fun, free event right in Baltimore!
