Each September, the Abell Improvement Association hosts the Abell Community Street Fair. This year Abell is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Abell Community Street FairThe AIA's biggest fundraiser, the Street Fair is an annual celebration of what makes this community unique, and what makes urban living great. With Abell Avenue's brightly-painted rowhouses as a backdrop, the Street Fair features live entertainment, great food, local artists and vendors, and Baltimore's Best Silent Auction. At a far more manageable scale than the oversized festivals in neighboring communities, Abell's Street Fair retains the authenticity and intimacy that defines our community. Our annual Street Fair is an opportunity for our community to reconnect, relax and be reminded of what makes Abell one of Charm City's most charming spots.
