Baltimore summers are peppered with festivals, and this year our favorite is Sowebo Fest. Held on the streets around Hollins Market, the festival hosts a wide range of musicians on four different stages along with all the festival food and fare you could want. It’s Baltimore’s hello to summer with its sno-balls, funnel cakes, dancing in the street, and reminder that this city’s artists make some seriously good art. And it is a chance for Baltimoreans of all sorts to check out the happenings west of MLK, a reminder that neighborhoods are thriving over here in spite of the city’s disinvestment from West Baltimore more generally. And though the Red Line won’t get you there anytime soon, the Circulator’s Orange Line will.
