Part of being a good neighbor, is taking care of our yard. We do more than that though, we manage public spaces and host year-round events in them to make living, working, and hanging out in Downtown more green. Whether it's kicking off the holiday season with The Monument Lighting in Mount Vernon or monthly outdoor happy hours in Charles Center, we plan something for everyone.

have fun

If you live or work Downtown, you’ve probably noticed a flurry of placemaking and events that are improving the experience for pedestrians. While we continue to produce big events Baltimore Restaurant Week, Pratt Street Farmers Market and Pints Fest, we also like to focus on small but impactful events like free yoga in Center Plaza and Preston Gardens and acoustic music in parks at lunch.

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.
