The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore is your connection to everything that’s happening in Maryland’s largest business center, cultural district, and fastest-growing neighborhoods. Their web and social media tools help everyone find dining, shopping, events… even a place to live or start a business. Their innovative programs stimulate economic development and transform public spaces. They’re also good neighbors. Downtown Partnership teams of uniformed Ambassadors pick up tons (literally) of litter, maintain public parks, and we host dozens of free events each month. You may or may not know that they are the producers of some of Downtown’s best events including Baltimore Restaurant Week, The Monument Lighting, Dollar or Less Days, and Pints in the Park.
