Downtown Partnership of Baltimore press release: 

Downtown Partnership of Baltimore has announced a one-day closure of Charles Street, between Saratoga Street and North Avenue, to facilitate outdoor shopping, dining, and strolling. The Charles Street Promenade is an extension of the outdoor dining parklets and pop-up events The Partnership has produced since the spring’s COVID shut down.

The pandemic has hurt businesses, including the small independent shops and restaurants that line Charles Street. It has also changed the way we think about engaging with public space. The Charles Street Promenade will address both these issues by encouraging patronage at local establishments and creating a better balance between people and automobiles, even if just for one day.

People will be able to shop at dozens of local boutiques and galleries, and dine in one of several outdoor parklets located at: Brewers Art, The Civil, Dooby’s, Lumbini, Marie Louise Bistro, Mick O’Sheas, Orto, Sotto Sopra, Spirits of Mt. Vernon, and Sugarvale.

Several organizations teamed up with Downtown Partnership to make the Charles Street Promenade happen, including the Central Baltimore Partnership, Historic Charles Street Association, Midtown Community Benefits District, Mt. Vernon Belvedere Association, and the Mt. Vernon Place Conservancy.

Social distancing rules will be in place and masks are required.
