Originally scheduled for last spring, the festival was postponed due the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival will now be held on Sunday, September 26, 2020 from 2:00 – 6:30 p.m. at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. The lineup (which is expected to grow) includes Modern Nomad, Impressions, The Adirondacks, Stages All-Access, and acts from the Lutherville Rock School. The event will also feature food trucks and interactive educational displays from environmental organizations.
Admission to the event is free. All funds raised at the event – through donations, merchandise sales, and raffles – will benefit the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
In his bio on the festival website, Spaulding writes: “I love music and the Bay and found that this festival would be the perfect way to connect the two. Many of my fondest memories have been formed on the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers; be it fishing, crabbing, or boating with my grandparents on the Piankatank River in southern Virginia; tubing with my cousins on the Gunpowder in Baltimore County; attending Sandy Hill Camp on the Susquehanna; or sailing with the Downtown Sailing Club on the Inner Harbor. I’m also a musician, playing in multiple bands and working on my music every day.”
