Does anyone have tips on attending this event? Just moved to the area and I'm interested in seeing what it's like. My former town Ann Arbor, Michigan has one of the country's best Art Fairs - and I'd like to see how this compares / contrasts. I'd appreciate any "inside" information on best times to attend, ideal mode of transportation, parking, etc.

Parking will most likely be a mess. Take the Purple circulator, light rail, or subway in. Road closures have already begun in preparation.

Artscape is a lot of fun. We used to drive from VA and attend one of the event days (usually Sunday). Parking was pretty easy--we would park in one of the garages (about 15-20 bucks) for the day.

Keep in mind, it will be HOT! So be prepared to buy a lot of water, drinks etc. That's really my only complaint with Artscape is that it seems to fall on the hottest weekend of the year. Other than it's a great time with a lot of cool vendors, with some really beautiful pieces for sale.

Include the indoor exhibitions, etc. It beats the heat and adds to the total experience. I'm from Michigan and attended the A2 fair. You will find Baltimore's to be much grander and more encompassing.

Artscape is great, and I really miss it. We have something like it in Asheville, NC, called Belle Chere, but not quite as grand but usually better weather.

We would ride our bikes down the Jones Falls trail and park at the University of Baltimore. The Station North part of the fair is my favorite. Lots of great music, so much to do, and so fun funky art. Bought some of my favorite art pieces there.

Bring a camping chair if you are going for the music. Bring tons of money....food and booze are ridiculously overpriced!

Yesterday turned out really nice for Artscape. The temperature was actually bearable.
