We love Downtown Baltimore and we want every resident, employee, and tourist to love it as much as we do.

That’s why we work hard year in and year out to program our Downtown neighborhoods with exciting events. Together with Visit Baltimore, we produce Baltimore Restaurant Week. Without Downtown Partnership there would be no First Thursday’s Concerts, Dollar or Less Days, or annual Monument Lighting in Mt. Vernon.

Residential Advocacy

"Unlike most major cities, the neighborhoods in Baltimore have a strong sense of community..."

“The reason why I moved to Baltimore was that I loved the architecture of the homes. From the Marble stoops to the detailed Cornices. It was captivating to me. Also, unlike most major cities, the neighborhoods in Baltimore have a strong sense of community. Baltimore has its own financial hub and is only a hour away from the Nation’s capital which was a plus as well. The amazing seafood selection  finalized my decision to move.”


— Jay G., Downtown Baltimore Resident
