Events this weekend (April 1 – 3)

By LEISURE EDITOR | March 31, 2022



As the first weekend of April comes around, find some time to visit a new museum or get outdoors. 

Welcome back from spring break, Blue Jays! I wish we could revel in the warm spring weather, but unfortunately Monday’s snow had different plans for us. Nevertheless, there are still plenty of fun happenings in the city this weekend that I hope you’ll enjoy.

All Weekend

Lemonade Selfie Museum, 1 – 8 p.m.

Looking for a new scene to take cute photos and spend a night out? Check out the Lemonade Selfie Museum (also called the Museum of Affirmations) any day this weekend! The museum is easily accessible via the JHMI Peabody stop. Visit the museum to find more than 20 colorful and vibrant rooms that will make gorgeous backdrops. Tickets are $32 each and can be bought on EventBrite


The BIG Baltimore Kite Fest, 12 – 4 p.m.

While the temperatures have been quite fickle lately, we can seemingly always count on Baltimore to be windy. The bright side to this is that it will likely make for a fun and successful kite festival this weekend at Patterson Park! Head to the Observatory at Patterson Park to watch as the kites of many Baltimore community members take to the skies. You can also buy a kite for yourself at the festival. Nearby restaurants will be offering specials for the day so you can bring some takeout while you watch the kites. More information for the event can be found on Facebook.

Hopkins Ballet Spring Showcase, 5 – 7 p.m.

Support one of the Hopkins resident dance teams at their performance in Shriver Hall. The group will be performing an abridged version of Sleeping Beauty and some student-choreographed routines, which will surely make for an entertaining and impressive night. You can register for the event for free on CampusGroups.


Grace Notes in American History: Curator's Highlights Tour, 1 – 2 p.m.

We all know and love the gorgeous Peabody Library at our neighboring campus, but have you ever wanted to know more about what’s on those shelves? The museum has just begun a guided tour series where you can view its unique sheet music collection. The tour will allow you to see sheet music signed by Amelia Earhart and Ira Gershwin, a manuscript allegedly penned by Edgar Allan Poe and works from Baltimore publishers of the past and Harlem Renaissance musicians. Tickets for the tour are free but must be reserved ahead of time on EventBrite.

Music at Evergreen 2022: Jonathan Swensen, 3 – 5 p.m.

Our section has sung the praises of the Evergreen Museum before, so I will gladly broadcast any additional opportunity for you to go check out this hidden gem of Hopkins. The museum’s concert series is hosting its final event of the year with Jonathan Swensen, an accomplished Danish cellist. Come for the music, but stay to peruse the art and grounds of the museum. Tickets are a reduced price of $10 for Hopkins students on EventBrite.
