Sunday: SoWeBo Arts and Music Festival

May 29

Good thing the Sowebo Festival is early in the festival season, before we all get burnt out on sweaty crowds and funnelcake and the like, because this is one not to be missded. We awarded it "Best Festival" last year for its promotion of arts and entertainment west of MLK—a huge part of the city whose artists, performers, and organizers are too often overlooked in favor of the Inner Harbor and Station North. This year, the Sowebo Festival has added a fifth stage to host their extensive lineup, including J Pope and Funk Friday, Joy Ike, Cowabunga Pizza Time, and Rufus Roundtree and Da Bmore Brass Band Factory. Also check out the huge salon-style exhibition of local artwork and performances by Black Cherry Puppet Theater. And, of course, never miss an opportunity to pop into Hollins Market. Noon-8 p.m., 1100 block of Hollins Street,, free. (Maura Callahan)
