About the festival

The Baltimore Magazine and IBMA award-winning Charm City Bluegrass Festival is back in Baltimore for its 5th year! Featuring the best in national and regional talent along with a day full of world-class music, food and drinks. We're proud to welcome back many familiar vendors including Union Craft Brewing as our exclusive beer sponsor. Join us on Saturday, April 29, 2017 for another amazing day of music and festivities in Baltimore!

We're going to have an awesome time Saturday, but we do need lay down some ground rules. The following items will not be allowed into the festival grounds: pets, fireworks, weapons of any kind, outside food or beverages, coolers, illegal drugs. You can bring in: two unopened water bottles per person, low back chairs (in sections where allowed), small snacks for kids and baby food. Re-entry is allowed for those 21 and over. Children under 10 will be admitted free, all others need tickets. The festival is rain or shine. Finally, please use common sense. If it seems like a bad idea, then don’t do it. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, who’s ready for some bluegrass?

Parking Info: Here's the lowdown on parking. There will be parking on-site provided by the city for $10 per car.

Low back chairs will be allowed, but only in sections where permitted on the festival grounds.

Children under the age of 10 will be admitted to the event with no charge. Tickets are required for all attendees over the age of 10.

The festival is a rain or shine event.

  • Pets

Finally, please use common sense. If it seems like a bad idea, then don’t do it.
