Maryland Nonprofits 30th Anniversary Year CelebrationJuly 28, 2022 | 6 PM - 9 PMOutdoors at the B&O Railroad Museum | 901 W Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21223
To honor Maryland Nonprofits turning 30 years old, we want to celebrate the people in the sector who show up and bring their best selves to the nonprofit work, day-in and day-out.
We joyfully invite you to a festive evening at the B&O Railroad Museum! We'll be outdoors in the museum's expansive pavilion, with a view of the historic Roundhouse, which will be open for you to explore and enjoy. Children are welcome to attend for free, and child-centered activities will be available.
Underneath the pavilion, enjoy music, dancing, a bar serving beer, wine, and tasty nonalcoholic beverages, and an array of delicious food including blue crab deviled eggs, chicken & waffle bites, tomato bruschetta, and vegetable spring rolls. There will also be booths; activities from nonprofits like Art with a Heart, Creative Alliance's Artesanas, and Intersection of Change's Strength to Love II farm and Jubilee Arts Youth in Business; as well as a performance by DewMore Baltimore.
The event's honored guests will be Maryland Nonprofits' Service with Distinction awardees. These awards recognize nonprofit employees, in positions that are not often formally celebrated, but who are critical to our work and deliver significant commitment, integrity, compassion, and caring for their organization and their communities.
'This is the moment to care...and CELEBRATE!' is the keystone event in our anniversary campaign: an initiative leading the way to more caring, equitable, and inclusive nonprofit workplace cultures. It commemorates three decades of being a trusted resource, advocate, and partner for organizations statewide.
Your participation supports Maryland Nonprofits' efforts to develop new approaches and tools to end burnout within the sector and promote strong, vibrant organizations. Plus, you're guaranteed to have a wonderful time!

The dress code for this event is “Anything goes!” Dress appropriately to be comfortable for an outdoor summer event. The pavilion is usually breezy, which should help with the July heat. We encourage guests not to wear high heels due to the footing at the museum.
Masks and testing: Let’s keep each other safe!
Maryland Nonprofits is requiring masks inside the museum when exploring exhibits or visiting the restrooms. We strongly encourage wearing a mask outdoors when not actively eating or drinking.
Vaccination status and negative test results are not required to attend the event. However, we greatly appreciate if you can take an at-home test prior to attending. Thank you for helping to protect our community!
Adults attending the event with children will be required to sign a liability waiver prior to entering the event. Children must always be supervised and accompanied by their adult. They can enjoy unlimited rides on the ‘Choo Choo Blueville’ and the ‘Happy Train’, visit nonprofit vendors to do an art activity, and explore the museum to see the trains.
This event will be held, rain or shine. The outdoor event space is a covered pavilion offering protection from rain, and if necessary, the event can be moved indoors.
