OCTOBER 12 & 13TH
Behold the Festival 54 Years in the Making
The Fells Point Fun Festival began in 1967 as a fundraiser to raise money to fight against a project that would have linked 1-83 and 1-95 and demolished an extensive area of Fells Point. Thanks to the initial organizers of this festival our neighborhood fought back and Fells Point as we know it was saved. Since then, the Annual Fells Point Fun Festival has grown to cover 6 city blocks in the heart of our beautiful historic, eclectic, and unique neighborhood.

The Year was 1967
A gallon of gas cost 27 cents, NASA launched Lunar Orbiter 3, and the Fells Point Fun Festival Fun Festival began to raise money to fight against a project that would have forever changed our neighborhood.
Plans were made to link linked I-83 and I-95 by building an elevated highway along the north shore of the Baltimore Harbor. This project would have entailed extensive demolition within Fell’s Point, and the highway would have cut off the remainder of the neighborhood from the waterfront. Over the years, The Preservation Society has worked to maintain the 18th and 19th century character of the historic structures within Fell’s Point.
The Society operates without cost to the city of Baltimore and it currently maintains many of the buildings as well as running historic tours of Fell’s Point. The Fell’s Point Fun Festival has grown dramatically over the years and continues to have a large impact in maintaining the historic integrity of Fell’s Point for businesses, residents and visitors.
