A Brief History of the Towsontown Festival
 
The Towsontown Spring Festival started 46 years ago as the Towsontown Art Exhibit.  It was held in the Baltimore County Courtyard and in 1968 it joined the Bicentennial Celebration.

Artists from the Towson School of Fine Arts exhibited their work. A distinguished panel of judges announced the awards in various categories, including a special show for young people. 

Campus Hill Community Association had some of the favorite booths among the teenagers, serving lemon and peppermint sticks. Dressed in colonial costume, residents of the community were busy throughout the day preparing the refreshments as the crowds visited them at the corner of Washington and West Pennsylvania.

Today with the help of 100’s of volunteers, sponsors and many Baltimore County Agencies, the Towsontown Spring Festival has turned into the largest outdoor festival in Maryland and one of the largest on the east coast.  Approximately 250,000 visitors attend the two day event with more than 450 vendors to satisfy the appetites of our patrons.  In addition there are four entertainment stages with over 50 acts and numerous national attractions.

This year we are again dedicating the festival to the men and women who serve our country. Opening ceremonies are held at the corner of Washington and Pennsylvania Avenues at 12:00 pm Saturday, May 4th.  Prior to opening ceremonies there will be Bag Pipers, Color Guard & the Chief Musician from the Department of the Navy to sing the National Anthem..

Bring your family and friends to enjoy all our wonderful summertime foods, unique vendors and the variety of entertainment.
