For most of the year, our home city of Baltimore, MD is known as Charm City, but for a few weeks every year Baltimore becomes Light City. Billed as "Baltimore's international festival of light, music, and innovation," the Light City festival is a great example of what makes our city such a special place to call home. With light installations created by artists from around the globe and the beautiful backdrop of the Inner Harbor, Light City is one Baltimore event you won't want to miss. Our REALTORS® have all of the details on what to expect from Light City 2018.
The Event: Light City 2018
When: April 6 - 21, 2018
Where: Inner Harbor and Harbor East, Baltimore, MD
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the air is warming up, which makes this the perfect time to enjoy some outdoor fun in your favorite city. The bulk of Light City 2018 takes place outdoors, along the water, so this is a great opportunity to shake those winter doldrums with a fun, outdoor event that offers entertainment for the whole family.
The theme for this year's Light City event is "More Love, More Lights" and you'll certainly find plenty of both at the festival. At the center of the action, you can explore the BGE Light Art Walk, which features new, innovative lights installations created by artists from around the world. The BGE Light Art Walk is located along the Inner Harbor, while the Neighborhood Lights initiative brings light art to 14 neighborhoods throughout Baltimore. If you're in the market, you won't find a more scenic way to shop Baltimore homes for sale.
The lights may be the brightest attraction at Light City 2018, but there will also be tons of great music to enjoy as you experience the spectacular sights. The Light Up the Night stage will have at least 24 shows throughout the event, with sets from both emerging local artists and well-known international musicians. Looking to keep the party going? Head out to Club City, where you can dance the night away with Baltimore's best DJs.
Light City draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year and aims to showcase all of the unique neighborhoods that make Baltimore special. The Brilliant Baltimore Community Showcase is an opportunity for every Baltimore neighborhood to get in on the action, with prizes awarded to the neighborhoods with the most unique Light City creations.
In addition to being a celebration of lights and music, Light City 2018 is also a place to share ideas. The Labs@LightCity program features a packed schedule of speakers, coming together to explore all of the ways that stronger cities can be created. And this is far from just a simple lecture series. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn, network, and share their own ideas in an inclusive, accessible setting. There will be labs on art, food, education, green living, health, creativity, and social awareness, along with a lab for teens with an interest in the arts.
Light City is just one of many great events that make life in Baltimore so special, and there's never been a better time to find your own home in the city. Contact us at BHHS Homesale Realty for all of your real estate needs Baltimore, MD.
