The OrchKids Green Festival, successfully launched in 2015, is a project designed to continue the conversation about change –

The foundation of this project begins with addressing the pervasive problem of litter and trash in the West Baltimore community and continues with an uplifting cultural experience that brings everything our great city has to offer directly into this community’s back yard. By allowing our students to be advocates of community awareness and values, we begin to empower be the next generation of leaders and socially-concerned citizens.

Green Festival Goals

  • Awareness

    of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s OrchKids program and their commitment to the youth of Baltimore City

  • Education

    and access to arts & culture, resources and educational materials that can enhance the West Baltimore neighborhood
