Don't miss the fun around Baltimore this weekend! Watch a new show, tour a new neighborhood or support a new local business.

It’s so exciting that we’re in the last month of classes! Hopefully, you get a quick post-midterms lull in your schoolwork, which gives you the perfect opportunity to check out some of the great events we have here. 

All Weekend

Baltimore Symphony Orchestra: Beethoven Ninth, 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will be performing one of Beethoven’s most popular pieces alongside jazz musicians from the Peabody Institute and Morgan State University’s Concert Choir this weekend. While the BSO is always great, this weekend offers a unique chance to also support some fellow classmates. There will even be a meet and greet with the musicians after the Friday night performance. Tickets for any of the week’s performances can be found on the BSO website

Pretty Woman: The Musical, 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Sunday

Check out a new Broadway hit brought straight to your door at the Hippodrome Theater! Pretty Woman: The Musical is currently on a global tour and will be making its stop in Baltimore this weekend. The musical is based on the renowned 1990 film and has a promising score. Tickets for the show can be found on TicketMaster

Friday

Night Market at Mount Royal Soap Co., 6 9:30 p.m.

Mount Royal Soap Co. is a local soap and skincare producer located right between Remington and Charles Village. Their first night market of the year will feature a chance to shop from them and other craft vendors, an Ekiben pop-up, and free drinks. This is a great opportunity to support several local Baltimore businesses, and it’s too close to campus to resist! There is no fee to enter, but you can find more information on Facebook.

Sunday

Historic Ridgely’s Delight Tour, 9:30 10:30 a.m.

Looking for a chance to check out a neighborhood in Baltimore that you haven’t gotten to visit yet? Look no further! Ridgely’s Delight, home to Baltimore native Babe Ruth, is a small neighborhood between Camden Yards and the University of Maryland. The tour will include information on him and other famous visitors and Baltimoreans that give the neighborhood such a rich history. Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased on the Baltimore Heritage website.
