“Patapsco Days: Creating Change in the 20th Century” brings activism related programming to the valley

The inaugural Patapsco Days, an annual exploration of the histories of the Patapsco Valley, is planned for the month of March 2019.

“Patapsco Days: Creating Change in the 20th Century” focuses on activism in the 20th century.

A dozen partners will offer over 20 programs including lectures, exhibits, guided tours, movie screenings, and more to engage visitors interested in a variety of experiences.  Visitors will learn new perspectives on the many stories of activism in the Patapsco Valley ranging from the fight for fair housing, to efforts to save the Patapsco Female Institute, the Catonsville 9, the tree huggers who fought development, and more.

Each program will be included in a passport. Passports for all Patapsco Day programs will be distributed at the opening and at subsequent events. Passports are a chance for participants to check off the events in which they have participated and enter to win a raffle at the end of “Patapsco Days”.
