Pennsylvania Avenue by Foot: A Rising Black Arts and Entertainment District

May 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$15 | Register

Pennsylvania Avenue has long been a center for Baltimore’s arts and entertainment scene. Virtually every famous entertainer of the day played here: Bill Holliday, Redd Foxx, Cab Calloway, to name just a few. Today Pennsylvania Avenue is on its way to being the newest designated Arts and Entertainment District and would be the city’s only one focusing on black artists. The arts designation will help spur ongoing revitalization.

Recently, National Geographic awarded the Arch Social Club (founded in 1912) over $100,000, and state investments have resulted in facade improvement along many blocks. Join us and our guides who have been leading the effort to get Pennsylvania Avenue designated as an Arts and Entertainment District as we walk through “The Avenue” exploring its history and its future.  

Explore all five of our spring Baltimore by Foot walking tours. Our Baltimore By Foot Tours program has been funded by Mayor Catherine E. Pugh and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts.
