The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA)
is uniting two of its marquee events: Baltimore Book Festival and Light City. Brilliant Baltimore will illuminate the city with literature, ideas, world-class light art installations, and live performances.
The Baltimore Book Festival, a celebration of the literary arts, features author appearances and book signings, exhibitors and bookseller tents, readings on multiple stages, children’s activities, and cooking demonstrations.
Light City, a festival of light, music, discussions and innovation, will feature a Light Art Walk at its center with awe-inspiring light art installations, performances, concerts, a fun-filled family zone, and Neighborhood Lights.
By uniting with Light City, the 24th annual Baltimore Book Festival will be the conference portion of the event addressing contemporary, innovative and historical issues through conversations, Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and workshops.
The festivals' move to November in conjunction with the end of daylight savings will provide visitors with a greater opportunity to view the light art installations earlier in the evening and to engage more authors as most new books are being released in mid-autumn by publishers.
BOPA is a proud producer of Baltimore Book Festival & Light City, and will soon be announcing additional related fall events.
