BHCA Neighborhood Events

BHCA sponsors and organizes regular events throughout the year.

 

New Neighbor Party – At the start of the calendar year, BHCA board members organize–and a member of the Bolton Hill community hosts–a new neighbor party for new renters and homeowners who moved to the neighborhood in the past year. It’s a wonderful opportunity for new neighbors to learn how to become involved in the community. If you’re new to the neighborhood and want to make sure you’re on the invitation list for the upcoming New Neighbor Party, contact newneighbors@boltonhillmd.org.

Annual Membership Meeting – The annual membership meeting takes place in May, when BHCA members current with their dues vote in the new class of BHCA board members. In addition to voting in new board members, BHCA caters food, arranges a special speaker, recognizes notable neighborhood volunteers, and the BHCA president gives special remarks.

Boltonstock – The family-friendly concert in Sumpter Park to kick off summer! Bring your picnic blanket, buy food and drink to support Boltonstock and BHCA, and enjoy the music. Open to all. For more information or to find out how to volunteer, contact boltonstock@boltonhillmd.org.

Crab Feast – For years, Bolton Hill has expressed appreciation and gratitude for its first responders and those who keep the neighborhood clean and green by holding a crab feast in their honor in August. Neighbors are invited to order crabs and feast on them and other picnic food and drink at the Bolton Hill Swim and Tennis playground with their firefighters, police officers, garbage and recycling collectors, and Midtown Community Benefits District staff. For more information, to volunteer, or to order crabs, contact crabfeast@boltonhillmd.org.

Yard Sale – The Yard Sale is Bolton Hill’s version of a good old fashioned garage sale. Held in September, residents are invited to purchase a spot around the Park Avenue sidewalks and medians to sell their stuff. Proceeds from spot purchases support the maintenance of parks in the northern half of Bolton Hill.

Festival on the Hill – Bolton Hill’s premiere block party held every autumn for more than 65 years. Come on out for food, drink, music, vendors, and if you’re a kid, the Kid Zone. Open to all. For more information, contact festival@boltonhillmd.org. Don’t miss it!
