Evening Highlights

Baltimore--Maryland's largest city and economic hub--lies just about 40 miles northeast of Washington, D.C., a little over an hour from Philly, and 2.5 hours from NYC by train. Commonly known as "Charm City," Baltimore has a rich cultural heritage and a dynamic spirit. It's a place where people dream big and celebrate who they are, where they've come from, and who they aspire to be through the arts, history, and diverse ethnic traditions.  Join ICMA for its 104th Annual Conference and see for yourself!
 
Check out Visit Baltimore ahead of time or the Host Desk in the convention center for entertainment and restaurant information.
 
ICMA and the 2018 Host Committee are planning the following evening social events for conference attendees, their families, and guests.
 
 



Maryland Science Center

Saturday, September 22 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


Situated next to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, the Maryland Science Center is one of the original structures that drove the revitalization of the harbor from its industrial roots to a thriving downtown destination. Three levels of modern, hands-on exhibits focus on space, physical science, Earth science, the human body, and the Chesapeake Bay’s native blue crabs. Catch up with colleagues and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres while exploring this fascinating venue and its great views of the Inner Harbor.
Adults/youth, $45; under 6 free. Price includes light hors d’oeuvres, venue rental, entertainment, coordination, and gratuities. Visit the Host Desk in the convention center before the party for restaurant information and dinner reservations.

B&O Railroad Museum

Tuesday, September 25 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM


Designated as a U.S. National Historic Landmark and part of the Smithsonian Institution, the B&O Railroad Museum has one of the most significant collections of railroad treasures in the world as well as the largest collection of 19th-century locomotives in the United States. A major restoration following a snow-related roof collapse in 2003 allowed the museum to upgrade many of its facilities so that it now can double as a beautiful event venue where ICMA attendees will enjoy food, drink, and entertainment.
Adults/youth, $60; under 6 free. Price includes dinner, venue rental, entertainment, transportation, coordination, and gratuities.
