Baltimore’s Virtual Birthday Bash 2020

Aug. 18, 2020

Birthday Bash

This year’s annual celebration of Baltimore City’s birthday looked a little different. While we couldn’t party with you in person, you still showed up in style and helped us raise almost $25,000 through individual donations and sponsorships! Thank you, Baltimore! Your support directly contributes to Live Baltimore’s mission. From a virtual celebration on Zoom to enjoying cupcakes together across the entire city, take a peek at some of the week’s highlights!

We used Zoom to host a meeting with about 200 City Lovers! Special guests included Baltimore City Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, Council President Brandon Scott, WBAL anchor Jason Newton, activist and Baltimore Ceasefire co-founder Erricka Bridgeford, the Oriole Bird and many Baltimore artists and creatives!

We had so much fun at our virtual Zoom party but there was one major thing missing— free cake! Thanks to Rouge Catering we were able to distribute 500 celebratory birthday cupcakes across the entire city. Starting first at the Waverly Market, we continued onto Patterson Park before heading to the National Aquarium. From there, we stopped at Lafayette Square Park and ended the afternoon at the ShopRite of Howard Park.

Passing out free cupcakes brought “smizes” of surprise to everyone’s eyes (even if we couldn’t see their smiling faces).

From young to old, East to West, canine and human we had plenty of fun and hope the socially distanced cupcakes brought a little bit of joy to everyone we were able to reach. This time next year we hope to be able to celebrate with everyone in person at Baltimore’s 292nd birthday party.
