Baltimore neighborhood preparing for family-friendly festivities

September 3, 2013 by  

One of the most popular historic districts in Baltimore is gearing up to host an annual gathering for the entire family.

This weekend, the Street Beat Festival will be returning to the city’s Federal Hill neighborhood. Flyer printing is likely on the increase as volunteers and sponsors from the community work to spread the word about this upcoming event.

The festival will feature a variety of live musical performances. This year’s participating artists will include Old Man Brown, Cara Kelly and the Tell Tale, and Freedom Enterprise. All of these vocalists got their start in Baltimore and still perform regularly around town. They will entertain the crowd from three stages.

Attendees will enjoy walking through Federal Hill’s tree-lined streets and perusing the booths of vendors with businesses based in Baltimore. They will be able to buy food, drinks, and souvenirs. A number of the entrepreneurs will be selling arts and crafts as well.

The event will offer activities for children in an area called ‘Kids’ Kross’. Here, youngsters will have the opportunity to play games and work on art projects.

The Street Beat Festival is scheduled for Sunday, September 8 and will be open from 11:00 am until 7:00 pm. The festivities will take place in the area of Cross Street and South Charles Street.

There will be no charge for admission. Attendees will be encouraged to ride the city’s free ‘Circulator’ buses to the event. Those seeking further information may call (410) 727-4500.
