First Thursday Festival returns to Canton Waterfront Park on May 5th for the first time since 2019 and the excitement level could not be higher. We are thrilled not only to be able to enjoy a free gathering with the music loving people of Baltimore, but also to support some of our favorite Baltimore and National artists after an unexpected and often daunting hiatus for them.

We couldn’t be happier to be hosting Rough Trade recording artist Parquet Courts, whose area show In April has been sold out for months. They will be joined by BMG recording artists The Heavy Hours, whose critically acclaimed debut EP was produced by The Black Keys Dan Auerbach. And last but certainly not least, Baltimore’s own buzz-generating, next best thing and Firefly performing artist Peach Face will be taking the stage as First Thursday’s return to Canton Waterfront Park May 5th. We can’t wait to see you there!
