Festival goers can enjoy live music, food trucks, exhibits, vendors, and a massive fireworks show overlooking the Patapsco River. A diverse lineup of performers will take the stage this year, representing a wide spectrum of sounds from soul to gospel to reggae, salsa and beyond. International Reggae Legend Sister Carol, Baltimore Club Queen TT the Artist, Baltimore Club pioneer Mighty Mark, The Legendary Ingramettes, International Soul/Jazz artist Navasha Daya and a host of local artists are slated to perform.

Collaboration continues to be a hallmark of the festival, and this year it will include a historic Baltimore Cultural Arts Program (CAP) photo exhibition and special activities in partnership with the Billie Holiday Center for Liberation and Inheritance Baltimore Community Archives Project. South Baltimore Gateway Partnership, a lead funder of the Cherry Hill Arts & Music Waterfront Festival, recognizes and supports the festival and its importance.

Seated along the Patapsco River, Cherry Hill enjoys access to water via Middle Branch Park, which is a perfect location for the Waterfront Festival and this year’s theme, which celebrates the bicentennial and undying legacy of freedom seeker Harriet Tubman who was born in Maryland, with special events leading up to the festival, as well as an array of special activities during the festival, including historical re-enactments, exhibits, an elders’ fashion show, the presentation of Harriet Tubman: 200 Festival Honorees and much more.
