Baltimore Book Festival
Baltimore is a diverse city with a wide variety of cultures, ethnicities and traditions dating back to when the city was founded in the early 1700’s. This diversity is showcased in the many Baltimore cultural festivals that take place from June to November every year. Festivals in Baltimore celebrate the heritage and culture of a variety of ethnicities including the Irish, Polish, Russian, African-American, Caribbean, Greek and Italian communities.
