Tips from the community

Long a Black mecca, similarly to D.C., Baltimore is a unique place to celebrate the Juneteenth holiday. The city’s annual Black arts and music festival, AAFRAM, happens this Juneteenth weekend at Druid Hill Park, featuring artists like Neyo and The O’jays. The festival also hosts AAFRAM restaurant week, featuring some of Baltimore’s best Black-owned restaurants. Places like vegan soul food spot, The Land of Kush, and Fishnet, a local fish house serving Baltimore classics like lake trout, will provide food specials.   Baltimore’s historic Pennsylvania Ave Black Arts District is presenting numerous events this holiday weekend, including a Juneteenth Festival at locally-loved Dovecote Cafe and a Freedom Day Celebration perfect for families that will be held on the holiday.

The historical city of Baltimore comes alive on Halloween night, with adorable neighborhoods around the inner harbor such as Upper Fell’s Point, Highlandtown, and Butcher’s Hill featuring some of the country’s best candy. With creative decorating, tasty treats, and a lively atmosphere, it’s no wonder Baltimore is constantly ranked one of the best trick-or-treat cities.

There are tons of other Black Businesses to support in the Baltimore area, but these were a few of my favorites. I hope this list inspires you to do your own research on what's Black-owned in your city!
