Welcome back to school, Blue Jays! I hope your summer was restful and restorative, and I’m excited to continue sharing great events happening around the city with you.
Hopefully you won’t have too much homework during the first weekend, so take advantage of these last few days of summer and the long weekend.
18th Annual DC Jazzfest, August 31 – Sept. 4
DC JazzFest is a five day bash that is completely free to attend for general audiences! There will be over 20 concerts throughout the weekend at various venues around the city. The main event concerts occur on Saturday and Sunday at The Wharf, where you can enjoy great music and waterfront views. More details about the festival can be found on Facebook.
B&O Farmers Market, 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.
While we are privileged to have the 32nd Street Farmers Market so close to our campus, I encourage you to explore other markets around the city whenever you can. The B&O Railroad Museum hosts a farmers market every Thursday evening with food, produce, beverage and retail vendors. Get more information about the market on the museum’s website or on Facebook.
National Cinema Day at the Senator Theatre
About ten minutes north of campus, the historic Senator Theatre is celebrating National Cinema Day by offering $3 tickets to any movie at any showtime! The movies being shown on Friday include Nope, Breaking, Spider-Man No Way Home (More Fun) and more. Reserve tickets on the Senator’s website.
Maker’s Market at Pariah Brewing Company, 12 – 5 p.m.
Baltimore is home to quite a few brewing companies, many of which host markets and events to foster community. The market will feature local artists, vendors, food and beer with no cost of admission. Get more details on Pariah Brewing Company’s website.
Baltimore Comedy Festival in The Lou Room at Zissimos Bar, 9 – 11 p.m.
Ever been to a comedy show in Baltimore? If not, Hampden is the place to be this Sunday. The Baltimore Comedy Festival is taking place all weekend long in various venues around the city.
Grab tickets on EventBrite for $10 to catch six comedians from across the country. If you miss this one, Zissimos has more comedy nights lined up on its calendar. You can also check out the other events on the Baltimore Comedy Festival website.
