Highlandtown Main Street

Highlandtown is vibrant, creative, international and eclectic. We are home to the Creative Alliance, Great Halloween Lantern Parade, Maryland Traditions Folk Life Festival, Highlandtown Gallery, Y:ART Gallery and others. We showcase our local talents with Mariachi bands, painted screens and public art. We’re home to Baltimore’s best park: Patterson Park. Voted one of the top ten urban parks by Forbes Magazine, the park serves over 50,000 people a year who walk, jog, bike, play on sports leagues and attend fitness classes.


We’ve always been a neighborhood of immigrants. Originally settled by immigrants from Germany, Poland and Italy, Main Street retailers now come from five continents, including Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. We’re a walkable neighborhood, too—with a Walk Score of 90—and our sidewalks are filled with runners, dog walkers and families out for a stroll.

Highlandtown is a place where you want to hang out, bring your friends, and be yourself. We’re a neighborhood filled with diverse people sharing their experiences. We invite you to be a part of our community—whether for a visit or as a place to call home.

Highlandtown is a nationally designated Main Street District and state designated Arts & Entertainment District and is supported by the dedicated volunteers of the Highlandtown Community Association, Highlandtown Business Association and many partnering organizations and groups throughout the area.
