Artscape is a summer tradition like no other, where Baltimore reunites and comes together. Celebrating its 39th year in 2020, Artscape is proud to showcase artists and makers, live concerts, visual arts experiences, performing arts, teen-focused activities and programming, film, experimental music, improv and comedy; an inquisitive literary arts program; and culinary arts with delicious eats.
Every summer, the entire region eagerly awaits Artscape. The festival’s iconic features include 50+ live concerts with national headliners, talented artists and makers, blockbuster performances, scrumptious food, spontaneous street theater, impactful visual installations and more. Artscape’s can’t-miss weekend of cultural enrichment nurtures the mind, body and soul of everyone who attends, and sparks a positive vibe that spreads citywide. This joyful spirit has inspired Artscape’s 2020 theme, Art for a Healthy City – presenting a variety of activations, stages, shows, workshops and hands-on projects, poised at the intersection of health and the arts. Festivalgoers can experience the therapeutic power of dance and movement; express themselves with journaling, poetry and spoken word; explore their untapped creative potential through music, pottery and painting; become inspired and informed with interactive, large-scale exhibits; and taste nutritious and delicious recipes at the brand-new culinary arts stage. Everyone’s invited to Artscape, come dance in the streets to celebrate the arts in Baltimore!
