Take Pride in These Weekend Events

Enjoy these Father’s Day weekend events featuring CNY Pride festivities, local and national music, Juneteenth celebration, comedy and much more.

Summer is officially at an arm’s length away, and let’s celebrate with another slew of weekend events.

Celebrate Pride Month with the annual 5K, parade and party at the Inner Harbor. The annual Juneteenth celebration takes place in Clinton Square. Celebrate other historical relevance with the historical home tours, beginning at the Barnes Hiscock Mansion, which has ties to the abolitionist movement.

Father’s Day is on Sunday, and there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate early whether it’s going to a concert, a show or any event from the plethora listed in our events calendar.

Whatever you do, have a great weekend!
