It’s summertime in the city and Baltimore has a little something for everyone.
The sun is out and “Netflix and chill” is no longer an acceptable plan for your weekend (just kidding, it always is). But seriously, try getting outside and immersing yourself in culture, food, and fun at one of the many upcoming festivals around town. Read on for our short list of Baltimore’s best fests this month.
HONfest: Brush up on your Baltimore-ese at the annual HONfest, a “Bawlmer” tradition for the past 23 years.
