A Farewell Celebration for "Out of the Blocks"

On Thursday, August 26 at 6 PM, join WYPR with the creators, participants, and fans of Out of the Blocks to celebrate a decade of Baltimore stories, told one block at a time. The event will be at the Pagoda Observatory hill at Patterson Park, located at 27 South Patterson Park Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21231.

You can register for the event, here.

It's free and open to the public! And, if you register in advance, the first 150 family groups to check-in at the WYPR table will get a deck of Out of the Blocks playing cards.

As the long-running podcast ends in August, this is your unique opportunity to meet the people whose stories you’ve heard on Out of the Blocks, to talk with producers Aaron Henkin & Wendel Patrick about how and why they made the show, and to learn some useful tips for your own DIY interviewing projects.

Bring a picnic and/or food will also be available for purchase. Don't forget to bring your own lawn chairs and picnic blankets!


COVID-19 :
If you are eyeing the uptick in COVID-19 numbers due to the spread of the Delta variant, we hear you. In an abundance of caution, this event is outdoors, in a venue with a ton of space to spread out, picnic style. We hope to see you and your family at the hill of Patterson Park on August 26th!
