Light City – Baltimore’s Annual Celebration


Nicknamed “Charm City”, Baltimore is home to the Inner Harbor, rich history, thriving arts scenes, and some of the nation’s best festivals attracting both lifelong Baltimoreans, tourists, and everyone in between.

Light City, the country’s first large-scale festival of art, music, and innovation is in its fourth year in Baltimore and continues to earn praise from critics and locals, alike.

For the first time, the Baltimore Book Festival and Light City have been combined prompting the Baltimore Sun to explain that organizers combination of both emphasized brilliance, “both in the light exhibits and in the imagination inspired by the books.”

Light City reimagines the waterfront into a premier cultural destination: fully accessible, free and open to all. Located along the Inner Harbor’s brick-lined promenade, the festival features awe-inspiring art installations, performances, concerts, a fun-filled family zone and special moments including an Opening Night Parade and a Closing Night fireworks finale. The festival’s food and beverage offerings are proudly 100% local, reflecting Baltimore’s burgeoning cuisine scene” (via Brilliant Baltimore)
