I'm going to Charm City, Charm City here I come,
I'm going to Charm City, Charm City here I come!

Folks, it is July, it is hot and it is time for Artscape! I have never been, not even to attend and check it out, which is too bad. It looks like a really cool event, complete with tons of music, contemporary visual arts, cutting edge fashion shows, great food and fun artisans. Tagged as "America's Largest Free Public Arts Festival", it will surely offer more than enough to do in a weekend.

This year, they are offering a new feature, which is allowing new and upcoming artists, designers and crafters the chance to display at Artscape in a more intimate setting under one big tent. It is called DIY@Artscape and should be full of really different stuff. The DIY tent is right in the center of all the fun, at the corner of Charles Street and Mt. Royal Ave.

The stats:

What: DIY@artscape
Where: Baltimore aka Charm City
When: Friday, July 18, noon-10pm
Saturday, July 19, noon-10pm
Sunday, July, noon-8pm
Who: Masses of people who will be having a lot of fun


The website is a *great* resource, with maps, participants, transportation info, including a coupon for discounted Amtrak tickets

I am really pysched about this weekend, hanging out, having fun and hoping to see you! ~Jen
