When do the programs start and end?

What if there are no seats/passes available?

We are very sorry. That means the performance you wish to attend is fully reserved. Many events have limited seating or capacity so advance reservations are required. However, check with the venue to see if there's a waiting list. Last resort - People often don't show up when they have reserved a ticket, so take a chance and go to the event. You might get in!

We would very much appreciate it if you would notify the presenting organization so your pass may be used by someone else.

Parking varies by venue.  A map of downtown parking facilities is on the Baltimore page.

As a visitor, what should I know about Baltimore?

Renowned for our bustling Inner Harbor, waterfront attractions and delicious Chesapeake Bay cuisine, Baltimore also has a rich cultural heritage rooted firmly in its diverse neighborhoods. Baltimore is home to two world-class museums that now offer free admission: the Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland's largest art museum housing more than 90,000 pieces of art, including the world's largest Matisse collection; and the Walters Art Museum, boasting 55 centuries of art from around the world. Baltimore's smaller, more intimate galleries and museums offer a totally different, yet unique, experience for visitors. 

Baltimore's ease and accessibility puts the city and its cultural institutions literally at your feet, as most attractions are easily walkable. You can begin your walking tour in the Inner Harbor to view the breathtaking waterfront vista. Walk a little farther out to explore quirky and inviting neighborhoods, each with its own proud ethnic heritage and culinary traditions. From the cultural mecca of Mount Vernon's intimate galleries and unique cafés, to the magical performances of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under the leadership of Marin Alsop, the first female music director to lead a major U.S. orchestra, to world-class stage performances at the Baltimore Opera Company, Center Stage and the Hippodrome Theater, Baltimore offers something for everyone. And, during Free Fall Baltimore, you'll be able to enjoy many of the city's exciting cultural activities for free, adding to the value already found in planning a trip to Baltimore. 

No matter who you are or where you live, it's easy to get to our historic waterfront city. With so many deals and discounts available this fall, Baltimore is the perfect place to escape, discover your artistic side and create a lifetime of memories!
