Crafts Corridor

The Crafts Corridor at the Baltimore Book Festival offers tons of fun hands-on activities for children and their families. (Located on the Inner Harbor Promenade by Rash Field) Plus, don't miss these events:

Storybook Parade
Saturday at 11am, Baltimore Book Festival holds its annual Storybook Parade taking place on the Inner Harbor Promenade. The procession will begin on the South Shore Promenade and end at the World Trade Center. Come join us as we march down the promenade in celebration of literacy and the literary arts with Junie B Jones, Cookie Mouse, Peter Rabbit, Wild Thing and the Maryland Circle of Griots’. All are welcome to join in; meet at Rash Field dressed as your favorite storybook character, author, or playwright!

Poetry in Motion
Students can use visual theater to create visual adaptations of Shel Silverstein poetry as well as play fun theater games using creative movement, mime and gesture. Weekend activities provide an opportunity for them to learn how to use their bodies as a tool for expression. Hours: 12pm, 3pm & 5pm (Friday and Sunday), 11am, 12pm, 3pm & 5pm (Saturday)

DIY Crafts
The Crafts Corridor offers hands-on activities for families all weekend long. Bring children of all ages for crafts including “A Wrinkle in Time” theme, DIY Galaxy Zen Jars and DIY Tesseracts.

Red Canoe will be the official bookseller for all authors appearing on the Enoch Pratt Free Library Children’s Stage as well as other fun children’s titles.
Red Canoe's mission, to build community through the power of literacy, has expanded over the last few years to include nourishment of the body as well as the mind! Visit the Red Canoe Bookstore Cafe for breakfast or lunch,  food to go, coffee and books, and of course fresh brewed coffee!
