Mayor Jack Young is canceling all special events in Baltimore through Aug. 31 due to the pandemic.

“I want to inform residents the city will be canceling all special events through Aug. 31 of this year. After consultation with our public health experts, we believe this is the best move for the health of our city and its residents,” Young said. “That includes everything: (July 4) fireworks, it includes the Artscape, and it includes AFRAM.”

The cancellations also include any other event that requires a city permit.

“Until we can see some type of downward turn, all that is canceled,” Young said.

The mayor said there’s a possibility that the city would revisit the dececsion later if the data shows it’s safe to do so.
