Eating at Artscape 2012

Carrie Murphy

It's coming! I'm talking about Artscape, Baltimore's yearly celebration of local arts and music. This year it's from July 20 to 22, in its usual place in Bolton Hill. Artscape isn't usually known for its food, but since I always enjoy the plethora of options offered at the festival, I decided to turn this week's spotlight on the festival.

Artscape is always crazy hot, so above all I recommend bringing your own water and drinks, if you can (even a flask, if you're feeling brave). I also recommend bringing a picnic blanket so you can find a shady spot to enjoy the food you'll buy from the vendors. The festival can get very crowded, and there's nothing worse then trying to enjoy a hefty turkey leg while standing and sweating in a crowd, am I right?

There are six—count em' six— separate food courts spread over the Artscape celebration: the Festival Stage food court, the Wells Fargo stage food court, the World Beat food court, the Movie Concessions food court, the Station North food court, and the Arts and Eats food court. And that's not even all of the food offered: there's also an area called the Taste of Artscape, and A-Tent-Tion Snacks and Treats, a camping-themed snack area. So basically, if you're wanting to fill your belly at Artscape this year, your options are pretty darn close to unlimited. From tropical fruity drinks to falafel, gyros and BBQ, there's something for everyone to eat. You can get cajun food, seafood, crepes and Thai. You can get yourself some classic Boardwalk fries. You can slurp down a water ice. And there's always pizza and burgers too, not to mention classic festival fare like cotton candy and funnel cake. Artscape is a foodie's paradise, so come with an empty stomach and a full wallet; you never know what might tantalize your tastebuds!

If you get too hot and just need an air-conditioned break, duck into On The Hill Cafe and try one of their incredible premium burgers or burritos. Or mosey on up to Station North and enjoy one of the great spots in that neighborhood: Tapas Teatro, Sofi's Crepes, or Liam Flynn's.
