Events this weekend (April 14 – 17)

By LEISURE EDITOR | April 14, 2022



As the semester winds down, Maras encourages you to check out some exciting concerts and events around the city.

Could it be? Could we finally be entering the warmer Baltimore days we know and love? I won’t jinx it, but I will encourage you to enjoy it while it lasts by checking out these events. Try something new and exciting before you get too busy with finals. Trust me, your brain will thank you in advance. 


Shake and Bake College Nights, 4⁠ – 10 p.m.

Shake and Bake Family Fun Center is a city-run recreation center that doubles as a bowling alley and skating rink. On Thursdays they have a special discounted price for college students at the bowling alley! The prices are $5 per game and $3 for shoe rental. While you’re there you can pop over to the skating rink for the adult skate from 8 p.m. to midnight. Stay updated on more promotions and events at Shake and Bake on their Instagram.


Peabody Concert for Ukraine, 7:30 p.m.

Join Peabody Institute graduate students hailing from Ukraine, Russia and Moldova as they hold a benefit concert for humanitarian aid in Ukraine. They will be performing pieces by Tartar, Georgian and Ukrainian composers. While the concert itself is free, the performers urge all attendees to donate to the Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health. You can view the performance virtually or attend in person, and details for the concert are on the Peabody website.


Epic Yard Sale 2022, 7 a.m. 2 p.m.

If you’re a regular at the 32nd Street Farmers Market, take a stop by Abell on your way to visit this yard sale! This sale is organized by Fierce Chicks ROCK, which is a nonprofit cycling team that raises funds as it bikes across Maryland. The proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit Moveable Feast, a Baltimore nonprofit that provides food to people suffering from chronic illnesses. Check out the Facebook event for more information.

Grim Reefer Fest 2022, 2:30 p.m.

The Ottobar is hosting a number of heavy music bands for their mini music festival. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, so that’s quite a steal for a full night of music from different groups! Eventgoers can also enjoy food from the Tasty Maryland food truck, which highlights classic Maryland food staples with its menu. You can buy tickets on ETix or at the door, and you can find more information about the event on Facebook
