Honfest takes over 36th St. in Baltimore, MD this weekend. It’s one of the four local festivals that I’m highlighting this week.
I’ve already covered what major music festivals are occurring in DC, Maryland, & Virginia this weekend here.
Each of the festivals listed in this article are cultural festivals in Baltimore except the 32nd Annual St. Mary’s County Crab Festival. What better place to go for crabs than to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, right?
If you live in the Baltimore or DC metro area, and you are not up for the road trip to St. Mary’s County, I suggest that you do the Baltimore trifecta. Start in Greektown and stop at the Greek Folk Festival, head a little west and stop at the St. Anthony’s Italian Festival in Little Italy, and then complete the trifecta with a stop on the west side of Baltimore at Honfest in Hampden.
