Welcome to Hampden, hon!

“In a city known for unique neighborhoods, Hampden is one of Baltimore’s most distinctive.

The area hosts many events throughout the year, including First Fridays, HampdenFest, Halloween in Hampden, HonFest, Miracle on 34th Street, the Mayor’s Christmas Parade, and more!

Only 10 minutes by car, bus or Light Rail from downtown Baltimore, Hampden is also convenient to suburban neighborhoods via I-83 and major arteries such as Northern Parkway, Cold Spring Lane, Charles Street and Falls Road.

The neighborhood is bordered by beautiful green spaces – Roosevelt Park, Wyman Park, and the Jones Falls.

Many other attractions are just around the corner — the Baltimore Museum of Art, Walters Art Museum, Baltimore Zoo, as well as colleges and universities, including College of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins University, Loyola College, Maryland Institute College of Art, and the University of Baltimore.

The Hampden Village Merchants Association works to keep the Greater Hampden area’s (including businesses in Medfield, Woodberry, Remington, and Roland Park) community of mostly independent and locally-owned shops, restaurants and businesses safe, unique and beautiful. To make Hampden shopping as convenient and accessible as possible, Baltimore City’s first Shuttlebug bus regularly services the area.

Whether you join us to shop or eat, use our professional services, or enjoy one of our many events, we hope to see you soon!”
