Events this weekend (April 28 – 30)

By LEISURE EDITOR | April 27, 2023



Take a break and blow off some steam before finals approach! 

Congratulations on finishing your last week of classes! There is a whole week until the start of finals; take this weekend to enjoy the Spring Fair and connect with the city at these great events.

Spring Fair

The biggest event of the year is happening right on campus! Everyday from Thursday to Sunday is filled with events — culture show on Thursday, art market and carnival activities on Friday, the Kehlani concert on Saturday and more food vendors on Sunday. Bring some friends, and let loose a bit after the last week of classes!


Fells Point Oyster Fest, 2 – 8 p.m. 

Join the Fells Point Oyster Fest this weekend at Broadway Square! The oyster fest is a celebration of good (and free!) food, live music and the history of Baltimore. If you’re not available on Friday, the festival will also be held on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. and 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. respectively. 

Hamlet, 8 – 11 p.m. 

Check out the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s edition of Hamlet. The opening night on Friday will mark the 20th year of the theater company, so head on down to 7 S. Calvert St. and catch a show for $23. They will be performing every weekend until May 21. 


Sheppard Pratt Feel Good 5K and Fun Run, 8:15 a.m. 

I see it as my duty to spread the word on all things running around Baltimore. Head up to Towson this weekend for a fun 5K! The inaugural race is hosted on Sheppard Pratt’s historic Towson campus, and all the proceeds go to the hospital’s free mental health services. Alternatively, if you’d like to support but running isn’t for you, sign up to the 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk starting at 8:00 a.m.


Waverly Book Festival, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. 

The Waverly Book Festival will be held this entire weekend! The festival appeals to book lovers and non-book lovers alike with its plans for book sales and launch events with local authors as well as the food, drinks and cake catered by Charm City Cakes. Best of all? It is right around the corner on 32nd and Greenmount.

Monster Jam, 1 – 4 p.m. 

Monster Jam comes to Baltimore! With tickets starting at $30, you get to see 12,000-pound monster trucks fly down dirt tracks this weekend at CFG Bank Arena. It caters to a specific audience but is definitely an experience to be had!
