Baltimore is all about accessibility and fun. It’s easy to get around town with our many transportation options (how many cities can boast “boat” as a viable option for getting where you need to go?) Have dinner al fresco in Canton and head to Camden Yards for a game in the Spring, or spend your day bike riding around town.

Stay on top of all the cool stuff happening Downtown, sign up for our newsletter. We bring Downtown events to your inbox twice a month.

In place of the traditional events calendar, we share events, entertainment options, restaurant news and promotion via Twitter at @DtBaltEvents and Instagram at @downtownbaltimore. Follow along for all the fun things to do in Downtown Baltimore.

Financing goal for Lexington Market has been reached, allowing construction to begin this year. The 40 million dollar renovation will break ground in February 2020.

After three years of advocacy, the resurfacing work along Baltimore Street between Howard and Gay Streets was completed in late 2019. We have been assured by DOT that the striping and crosswalks will be repainted as soon as the weather gets warmer. Thank you to all the City partners that helped make this possible.
