CIAA Baltimore 2021

Raising the Game!

Visit Baltimore and the Baltimore Sports Tourism Development Council cannot wait to welcome CIAA to Baltimore this coming February 2021

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA®), the nation’s first African American athletic conference, has selected Baltimore as the official site of the 2021-2023 CIAA Men’s and Women's Basketball Tournament.

There are so many exciting things to do in Baltimore while you are here for the tournament:


Promoter/Venue/Member Based Needs:

We encourage you to register your event with Visit Baltimore via the Visit Baltimore Related Event Registration form above, but due to the unforeseen circumstances of COVID-19 we ask you to hold turning in Related Event Applications to the Baltimore Liquor License Commissioners and Special Events Permits to the Department of Transportation until further notice. If you have a registered event with Visit Baltimore, we will contact you when departments are ready to again accept applications.
