Oct. 4-6: The Night Brunch Festival

Harbor Point, 1500 Thames St. Fri. 6 p.m., Sat. 2 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m. $15-500.

After more than a year of hosting brunches after dark at area hotspots—no mimosa cut-off times or reservations required—the Night Brunch team is stepping up their game with a three-day festival dedicated to all things fried and boozy. Kick off the weekend with a happy hour preview at the 1405 Point rooftop pool (featuring mermaids and freshly rolled cigars) before returning to the Harbor Point plaza on Saturday and Sunday to sample brunch-inspired eats from local restaurants and vendors such as Clavel, The Local Fry, and Big Softy. In between rounds of Bloody Marys, take in live music sets by local artists Joi Carter, FUNSHO, and the co-founder of the event himself, DJ Impulse.

Oct. 5: Mobtoberfest

Mobtown Brewing Company, 4015 Foster Ave., Suite 400. 12-6 p.m.

Thanks to new brewery on the block Mobtown Brewing Company, Brewers Hill is getting its own Oktoberfest complete with a German-style food menu from The Rolling Grill, live music by whiskey-rock band Old Eastern, and commemorative beer steins. Don your best lederhosen or dirndl dress and spend the afternoon downing Mobtown’s special-release Mobtoberfest Marzen and Schwarzbier, as well as taproom favorites like the Belgian amber ale Tiny Purple Fishes and the golden sour Ex-Girlfriend.

Oct. 5: Parktoberfest

Mount Vernon Marketplace, 520 Park Ave. 12-11:30 p.m. Free.

We all know and love the Mount Vernon Marketplace for its eclectic mix of food and drink options, but for one weekend a year it also becomes the site of a full-blown music festival featuring some of the best rising acts in Baltimore. With more than 11 hours of nonstop live music, this can’t-miss shindig features eight back-to-back sets from the likes of hip-hop artist Al Rogers, Jr., trumpeter Brandon Woody, and high-energy rapper and DJ Kotic Couture. Stick around to imbibe on specialty cocktails, sample eats from 14 local vendors, and jam out to a wide range of artists that represent every corner of the Charm City music scene.
