Reader Shannon wrote in another suggestion for your weekend. In addition to the Whartscape festival featured earlier, Baltimore does have another, bigger festival competing for your attention: Artscape 2008.
Artscape claims to be the country’s largest free public arts festival. The event includes visual arts as well as just about every kind of performance you can think of – fashion shows, music, theatre, film… There is even a category of “Exotic-Hypnotic” which has several events each day. Charm City Craft Mafia and other indie crafters will be selling their work at DIY @ Artscape.
These activities and much more will take place in numerous venues around the city, Friday and Saturday noon to 10, and Sunday noon to 8.
