Traffic Modifications for the Moonrise Festival at Pimlico Race Course

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists of the traffic modifications that will be in effect for the Moonrise Festival.  The event will be held on Saturday, August 12 and Sunday, August 13, 2017 at Pimlico Race Course.  

Patrons attending the event are strongly urged to carpool or use public transportation.  Citizens that choose to drive to Pimlico Race Course should park at commercial lots and avoid parking in area neighborhoods.  All posted parking restrictions will be strictly enforced and vehicles parked in violation will be ticketed and towed.  Vehicles that are towed during the event will be relocated to Cylburn Avenue just south of Northern Parkway.  Citizens with questions concerning the location of their vehicle should call 311.

During the event, Traffic Enforcement Officers and the Baltimore City Police will assist with the movement of traffic in the Pimlico area.  Motorists traveling throughout northwest Baltimore may experience delays this weekend and should be on the watch for pedestrians and changing traffic patterns while driving.

In preparation for the festival, the following special traffic patterns and road closures will be implemented:
