As we wind down the semester for finals and break, here are a few events to destress and get into the holiday spirit.

This last events article of the semester is a special one! We will look ahead to all the fun winter festivities and see the many ways to celebrate the holiday season in Baltimore. It’s a great way to relieve stress during finals week or to celebrate the end of the semester. Happy holidays — Events This Weekend will be back next year! 

Christmas Village in Baltimore, Nov. 18–Dec. 24

One of Baltimore’s best traditions is the German Christmas market at the Inner Harbor every winter. Make the time to visit for authentic German food, fun rides and activities as well as a night market to satiate all your holiday shopping needs. There is also an ice skating rink right next to it!

Miracle on 34th Street, Nov. 15–Jan. 1

Make sure to check out Baltimore’s most festive neighborhood this winter on 34th Street in Hampden! The prized display is entering its 74th year and is free for all residents of Baltimore. It’s the perfect place to go for a date, a stroll after dinner or an escape from finals and papers.

Charm City Lights, Dec. 5–Jan. 1

If you have a friend with a car, ask them to take you through the light show in Druid Hill Park! Located right near Homewood Campus, the drive-through light display through the greeneries of Druid Hill Park and the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is an unforgettable experience. 

Third Annual Station North Holiday Market, Dec. 9, 12:30–5:30 p.m.

Get a head start on your holiday shopping at the Third Annual Station North Holiday Market. It features small business vendors from all over Maryland and student organizations from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Make sure you don’t miss out on the food trucks, performances and many other activities. 

53rd Annual East Baltimore Christmas Caroling, Dec. 23, 3 p.m.

If you are staying in Baltimore until Christmas, join the Polish Home Club in a Christmas caroling parade in Fells Point. There will be food served and there is no better way to get into the Christmas spirit. Don’t forget to wear your Santa hat!
