Baltimore is known for their famous crab cakes and indie music scene, with bands such as indie duo Beach House finding their start in Charm City. But this October may be the best time ever to experience Maryland’s largest city.
With more than 300 events slated during the month of October, almost every day of the month will feature a free arts-related event. Free Fall Baltimore has the full array of the city’s art culture on display from the symphony and dance performances to museum lectures and gallery tours.
This month-long festivity is taking place in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM), a coast-to-coast celebration or our nation’s important cultural contributions.
Event highlights for Free Fall Baltimore include:
- Everyman Theatre Tour, Oct. 6: Be among the first to partake in an exclusive tour of the brand new theatre on West Fayette Street set to open in January, 2013.
