Sunday: Abell Community Street Fair

Sept. 17

I've been living in the Abell neighborhood for over two years now, and I've found that, among other perks to living in this weird pocket of Baltimore that isn't quite Charles Village or Waverly, it's a lovely spot to hang outdoors. The rowhome facades are the most colorful in the city and the residents take their gardens seriously (well, some of us—if only I had the time), and there's that really friendly cat with the scar on 30th and that one guy who's always walking around, expertly whistling like he's in an early Disney movie. Better yet, when the annual Community Street Fair is on, you can enjoy all that alongside live music (featuring Other Colors, Nina Gala, Sac Au Lait, Hexgirlfriends, and more playing across two stages), food (including a crab feast), drinks, and a heckin' cute children's parade. Plus: free kids' activities, free books from The Book Thing (rising from the ashes), and stoop sales. Noon-5 p.m., 3000-3200 Abell Ave.,, free. (Maura Callahan)
