Artscape Baltimore

From Friday, July 15 through Sunday, July 17, Baltimore will once again host Artscape , America’s largest free arts festival that attracts over 350,000 attendees over the three-day period. Produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts (BOPA), on behalf of the Baltimore Festival of the Arts (BFAI), the festival is now in its 35th year of celebrating the vibrant art community in the area. Artscape Baltimore is open to the public and will take place rain or shine.

Celebrate the Arts in Baltimore

Baltimore is a city known not only for its rich cultural and ethnic diversity, but also for its thriving arts community. Galleries, museums and performance halls in and around the city make access to artwork and performances from renowned artists readily available to residents and visitors alike. The theme of Artscape 2016 is “Space,” with a tagline of “Explore What’s Out There.” The Space theme is incorporated throughout the Baltimore art festival’s visual and performing arts programming. This year, Artscape features three outdoor stages and seven indoor venues hosting over 200 live concerts, theater and dance performances, and more. Plus, over 150 visual artists and craftspeople will be displaying and selling their work. Attendees will also enjoy an array of visual and performing art exhibits, such as outdoor sculptures, pop-up street theater and more.
