Free Fall Baltimore
Welcome Fall 2015!
Hi Guys! Fin here. It's been awhile since we've last seen each other, but I'm glad your here now! There's something I have to tell you and it's amazing! Barnacle and Henry loves it just as much as I do. What's great about the city is that there's always something going on and to do.
As we bid summer goodbye, we welcome Fall with open arms! ... I'll miss summer... but anyway! When Fall hits, the city of Baltimore gets together and hosts and event known as 'Fall Free Baltimore!'
Free Fall Baltimore is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA), the city’s non-profit special event agency, arts council and film office. BOPA champions the important role of creativity in building a vibrant, exciting and livable city, energizing not just the arts scene, but Baltimore as a whole. Inspiring and nurturing artists and showcasing the literary, performing and visual arts, BOPA presents a wide range of activities, from popular festivals such as Artscape, the annual July 4th and New Year’s Eve fireworks display over the harbor, and Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar to public art, murals, studio space for artists, exhibitions and art classes at School 33 Art Center.
The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts developed the Free Fall Baltimore program to increase access, interest and attendance in the city's many cultural organizations, especially for families and young adults, who are the creative community's future patrons.
Free Fall Baltimore is made possible by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, an independent non-profit organization, and the generous contributions of BGE, The Abell Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, American Trading & Production Corporation (Atapco), The Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Foundation, and the Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Charitable Funds.
There's TONS of events! From the arts to workshops, there's something for you and the family or just yourself to do! For instance, there was a jazz concert here at the Pier 5 Hotel, by Jazz Legend Carl Grubbs. My parents really liked it. The inspiration came from the Inner Harbor, so when you closed your eyes and listen to the music, you could really see Baltimore in the music. It's weird I know, but my parents understood it. But anyway!
If you happen to be at any of the events, don't be afraid to say hi! I'd love to see you! Remember, don't just visit Baltimore, EXPERIENCE It! There's so much to do and I hope you'll be able to attend!
