We want you to enjoy the “new” H Street as part of an even larger crowd than the 50,000 who loved HStreetFestival2011. So, we’ve planned quite an all day party from noon to 7pm for young and old alike. In addition to all of the stuff that made last year’s festival great – like the live music on 5 stages, the artcars, the Baltimore Rock Opera Society, the fashion shows, the patio cafes and the street parades, we’ve added even more entertainment and events to HStreetFestival2012’s 6 blocks of Urban Fun.
