Feb. 16: Grateful Dead for Kids at the Gordon Center for the Performing Arts
March 14: Dan and Claudia Zanes at WTMD
Doors open at 9 a.m. and the concerts start at 9:30 a.m. Our usual shows at WTMD run until 11 a.m., with an opener and a headliner. But our Beatles Family Festival will feature a headliner (Yellow Dubmarine) playing two sets, and different musicians on the outdoor stage performing acoustic Beatles tunes.
Very! The WTMD performance studio is a bright, clean environment with comfy furniture that’s ideal for climbing and sitting. Both our men’s and women’s bathrooms have stainless steel changing tables, and stools for our bathroom sinks.
Yes, they are included in the ticket price, thanks to Eddie’s of Roland Park. We have fig bars and organic fruit strips as well as Horizon organic regular and chocolate milk and Honest juice. Each kid can have one two-pack of fig bars, a fruit strip and either a juice or milk carton.
Race Pace Bicycles sets up bicycles with training wheels for children to ride around the enclosed plaza outside our studio. They are trained professionals, and provide helmets and bicycles for children who are just learning how to ride to children who are a little older and more experienced. It’s a blast!
It changes from concert to concert, but generally speaking, 0-7 years old is our sweet spot. Also, we keep the music at a reasonable volume level, and offer earplugs for toddlers and adults.
Last year, Baltimore Magazine named Saturday Morning Tunes a Best of Baltimore award winner! They wrote, “Kids can rejoice at this awesome new concert series, tailored just for them. Tip back a juice box and get ready to rock out.”
There is a free visitor lot across the street from the station, and plenty of street and garage parking in Towson.
Yes, you can park outside with your blinkers on, load your stroller into the street-level elevator, take it up one floor and park the stroller on the plaza outside the studio. But honestly it might just be easier to carry your baby in.
Our performance studio is only a few years old, and the bathrooms are still nice and new. Both the men’s and women’s bathrooms have stainless steel infant changing tables in them.
There are some soft, comfy tiered romper chairs around the perimeter of the performance studio, but most of the kids and parents sit or stand on our wooden floors. We’ve found that fixed seating and kids at a concert generally don’t mix.
Garrison Forest School includes coffee in the price of all tickets. And they have all the fixin’s. It’s just what us parents need. You can find them in the conference room, adjacent to the main performance studio.
Sadly, no. But we’ll let you know if anything changes!
Great question! You can email our membership director, Kristin Laporte, at email@example.com
Baltimore magazine’s Reading Corner mixes musical merriment with some reading fun! Be sure to participate in their take a book, leave a book station and share some literature love with Reading Rock Stars of all ages. Don’t worry, parents are reading rock stars too and can read along with a complimentary issue of Baltimore.
