Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) and the Mayor's Office of Baltimore City are thrilled to announce the return of one of the nation's largest free arts festival, from Friday, September 22 to Sunday, September 24, 2023. This highly anticipated event is making a triumphant comeback after a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Artscape 2023 promises to be an extraordinary celebration of art, culture, and community — featuring an incredible lineup of artists, vendors, and organizations — with exciting new additions and beloved classics.
Artscape 2023 will feature four outdoor performing stages, including the newly added "North of North" stage, located at North Avenue and 20th. These stages will showcase local, regional, and national musical acts, as well as a variety of performances. Grammy Award-winner Kelly Rowland has been named the headliner for Friday evening of the Festival with Saturday night’s headlining act Angelo Moore of Fishbone performing with his band Dr. Madd Vibe. Multiple GRAMMY-winning composer, producer, arranger, and guitarist Nile Rodgers & CHIC will perform on Saturday afternoon as headliner. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will headline Sunday.
