The Hot August Music Festival is award winning festival (Baltimore Magazine Best Music Festival 2013, Tri-State Indie Music Award for Festival of the Year 2011) that is an intimate, fan-friendly event that is a must see each year.  In addition to three stages of live music, Hot August Music Festival also features performance artists, local artisans, a wide range of food and beverage vendors, and activities throughout the day for kids.
