One of Baltimore’s vibrant communities has anchored another tradition. The 5th Annual Cherry Hill Arts & Music Waterfront Festival will take place on July 4th, and once again will be held virtually. Organizers transitioned the festival to its virtual format after guidance and instruction from local and state authorities. Lineup and streaming information will be announced at a later date. The festival is free and open to the public.
Established as a community for returning African American veterans of World War II, Cherry Hill has experienced a plethora of social and economic challenges. Despite this, the multi-generational community has not only maintained its resiliency, but also demonstrated its ability to thrive, even in the face of the pandemic.
