Baltimore lights up with Light City

by Michael BeenerMarch 29, 2016

Premiering in 2016, Light City Baltimore is the first large-scale, international light festival in the United States, homegrown right here in Baltimore. Light City will provide a backdrop for the celebration of ideas, ingenuity and creativity through art, music and innovation.

Light City will shine a light on Baltimore’s abundance of creative, cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary talent, and we welcome participants from across the globe to join us.   Light City’s innovation programming will generate an ecosystem of ideas and learning during the day – while lights, performances and live music reimagine the Inner Harbor at night.  Festival is open from 7:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. Monday, March 28- Thursday, March 31; 7:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m. Friday, April 1-Saturday, April 2, and 7:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 3.

The inaugural Light City Baltimore transforms the city into a beautiful, glowing beacon. The 1.5 mile BGE Light Art Walk features 50 attractions including illuminated visual artworks, street theater, musical performances and concerts. All will be free and accessible to everyone.



No celebration is complete without music. Light City Baltimore will feature uniquely curated live shows that will invite the world to experience Baltimore, one of America’s hottest music scenes, from classical to alternative rock. Stages at venues large and small host a diverse lineup of stars and up-and-coming acts that are creating the soundtrack for the next generation. Festival-goers will be entertained and inspired by performance artists, dancers, bands, DJs and more at Club Light City, Harbor East Stage and Mini Light City.


Light City U is bringing together innovators and thought leaders in four key industries during America’s first large-scale light, music, and innovation festival. During the week changemakers from across the nation will explore one question: How do we become a more responsible and equitable society? Be a part of this landmark event altering the way we think about social change.
