Baltimore National Heritage Area Presents
Port Fest Baltimore 2014
October 13-19, 2014
A driving force in Baltimore and Maryland’s economies for more than 300 years, the Port of Baltimore is a hub for numerous jobs and career choices. Hundreds of corporations, government agencies, non-profits and military organizations require the energy, knowledge and creativity of thousands of people from many different backgrounds each and every day to thrive and survive. Often, they must search outside our own city and state to find the talent they need.
Port Fest Baltimore, organized by the Baltimore National Heritage Area, with the support of the Port and educational communities, is focused on creating a talent pool here at home. Activities will provide students, teachers and the public an opportunity to explore the diverse opportunities available in the maritime industries that support our working port. Port Fest Baltimore will feature events and attractions in and around the Port of Baltimore: the Inner Harbor, Canton, Fells Point and the port terminals. Participants will sample hands-on educational experiences that will expand their understanding of Baltimore’s working port and its connection to their daily classroom learning process and lives.
Please help Port Fest Baltimore highlight the exciting possibilities that our working port offers to our students and our community. Find out how you can become involved.
