Fun Fall Festivals
October 5-8 is the 51st Annual Greek Festival, an event at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation with enough food, pastries, wine, and music for everyone to enjoy! With a large selection of wines, cheeses, and olives available, this event is essential for all lovers of Greek culture.
For lovers of blues music, The Lyric will be hosting the Charm City Blues Festival on October 6, a celebration of musical storytelling filled with stark emotion. The festival will feature performances by King George, Pokey Bear, Calvin Richardson, Lenny Williams, and Theodis Ealey, and will transform tragedy, adversity, and heartbreak into a visceral and cathartic experience.
On October 17 from 5-8pm, the Alexander Grass Humanities Institute at the famed Johns Hopkins University will play host to a screening of Birds of Passage, a Columbian film directed by Cristina Gallego & Ciro Guerra, as a part of the Latin American Film Festival. This visually striking film acts as both a thriller and an anthropological study on the consequences of outside influence to indigenous traditions.
On October 7, M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore will be visited by two music legends: Stevie Nicks and Billy Joel! Join these two iconic musicians for an unforgettable evening of live music.
For those looking to enjoy some delicious food and drink while they listen to music, the Cross Street Market hosts live music every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday! Some come to enjoy one of their many merchants, such as Dachi Ramen or the Southside Burger Bar, while you jam out to some amazing tunes.
On October 19, make your way to the iconic Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University to witness the Preparatory Faculty Chamber Recital. Get ready to witness a masterful musical performance that you won’t soon forget!
