Weekend's Best Bets: Art Cars, Sandbars and Comedy Stars

Jul 14, 2011 07:46PM ● Published by Anonymous

Well, the weekend is upon us once more. Let's take this opportunity to turn off the computer, get up from the desk, and head out the door.

In Annapolis:

Have you heard about the Annapolis Comedy Festival? It's taking place this weekend! Comedians from New York, Chicago and Charleston are making their way to Naptown to bring you improv, sketches and stand up. Tickets range from $15-$33, and performances last from 8 p.m. on Thursday to 11 p.m. on Saturday. Find out more at the festival's website.

On the Eastern Shore:

Last July, the Sassafras River Association celebrated its namesake with Sassafest River Jam! This Saturday, they're doing it again. Come to Harbor View at Georgetown Yacht Basin in Galena at noon for a free day of exhibits, races, poker runs and live music culminating in a 5 p.m. performance by the Shore's sweethearts, Chester River Runoff.

In Baltimore:
If you've never been to Artscape, now's your chance to get in on the fun. Running from noon on Friday through 8 p.m. on Sunday, Artscape 2011 is America's largest free arts festival. And, as you wander through Bolton Hill and the Station North Arts District, you'll get to soak up exhibitions by 150+ fine artists, fashion designers and craftspeople. Enjoy musical performances by stars such as American Idol winner, Fantasia, bluesy hip-hop artists G. Love and Special Sauce and American Hasidic Jewish reggae phenom Matisyahu. And, make sure you stop to see the festival's legendary art cars. You'll see the photos later, and wind up kicking yourself if you don't. Trust me.
