Ridgely’s Gala

Last month’s Gala was a huge success. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who purchased a ticket.

We couldn't have done it without the generous support and donations from several local businesses. Special thanks to 27 Gems Spa & Boutique, Babe Ruth Museum, Bills Music, Charm City Books, Culinary Architecture, Groundwork Kitchen, Pickett Brewing, Pickles Pub, Pigtown Main Street, Suspended Brewing, WhitePaws RunMitts, Wico Street Beer, Zeke’s Coffee and the generous gifts from the Gala committee members. Your support helps us to continue to make Ridgely’s Delight a vibrant and welcoming community.

Community dumpster

There will be a dumpster on Conway Street for community use on the morning of Saturday, September 30. These dumpsters are generally dropped off in the neighborhood around 9am and then picked up again by 11am.

Please do not use it for commercial waste, appliances (including microwaves and air conditioners) or building materials. Abuse could limit our ability to receive dumpsters from the city in the future.

On September 30, from 12-7pm, Pigtown will be home to the 21st Annual Pigtown Festival. Cheer on your favorite pig at the iconic “Squeakness”, Baltimore's only pig races. Enjoy live music, food, and drink, and browse arts and crafts tables. Families will love the amazing KidZone.
