Baltimore's Federal Hill is a neighborhood in the truest sense of the word. Many of the people that live here have families that go back three or more generations and are very active in the community. The residents of the area are committed to making it a great place to live by keeping the area's history alive while planning for the future. Nowhere is this sense of community living more evident than the annual Federal Hill Block Party.
Federal Hill Main Street organizes three festivals every year and the first is the Spring Block Party. Held in the streets on the north end of the Cross Street Market, the Block Party is a chance for all the residents of Federal Hill to come together and meet new friends while enjoying great food, drinks, and vendors displaying their arts and crafts for sale. Local bands will play on two stages to really get the party going and local food vendors will be serving up everything from crabcake sandwiches to shrimp on a stick.
This year's block party will be held on Sunday, April 27 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $10 or in advance for $5. Don't miss out on the opportunity to kick off Festival Season and celebrate in the streets with your friends and neighbors.
The homes in Federal Hill are mostly brick townhouses, single family homes, and homes that have been divided into apartments. The majority of the homes were built between 1870 and 1920, some of them are even on the National Registry of Historic Places. Most these homes have been restored and remodeled to include modern conveniences and updated finishes while many are still waiting for just the right person to love them back to life.
The Federal Hill neighborhood is located just a few blocks south of downtown Baltimore's business district giving local residents easy access to the top employers in the area such as the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Under Armour, and an American Sugar refinery.
