Hampdenfest 2012 is September 8.

The famous Toilet races are on as usual, a number of food and drink vendors, as well as exhibitors and vendors! This year the toilet race is at 2pm.

There are three stages with music (three with bands, one tent with a DJ) with shows beginning at 11am.

This year the second “Great Baltimore Mac Off,” will occur, which is a cooking competition featuring the ever popular macaroni and cheese. The judging and tastings will be from 12-2pm.

Finally, there will be the BIB — the Baltimore InterRestaurant Battle, an obstacle course for servers with multiple stages, running from 11am-3pm.

This will be the first year without Hampden Idol, but there is plenty of entertainment to replace it!

Come on down to Hampden this Saturday for a good time, then when it’s over, go to Downtown Baltimore to see our playoff hunt Baltimore Orioles take on the Yankees! A great weekend for the City of Baltimore!
