See Beyond Festival

The Maryland School for the Blind 3rd Annual See Beyond Festival is an event dedicated to exploring accessibility, adaptation, and the spirit of inclusion. On April 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 3501 Taylor Avenue, Baltimore, MD, the festival will offer an unparalleled opportunity for participants to embark on a sensory adventure that promises to enlighten and inspire.
At the heart of the See Beyond Festival is a commitment to fostering understanding and dialogue around the challenges faced by individuals with vision loss. By encouraging participants to wear eyeshades during a selection of activities, the festival aims to raise awareness of how adaptations make the world more accessible, highlighting the importance of building an inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. 

The festival is designed to be a vibrant celebration of diversity, featuring a wide range of activities that cater to all ages and interests: 

  • KidsZone Adventures: Free balloon animals, interactive games, and an accessible playground. 
  • Inclusive Sports: Experience beep baseball, blind soccer, and more. These accessible sports provide a fantastic opportunity for attendees to learn about and participate in adaptive athletic activities.
  • Culinary Delights: Local cuisine as food and beverage vendors. 
  • Maker’s Market and Vendor Fair: Support local artisans and discover unique, handcrafted items. 
  • Live Music: Live performances and new this year the first hour of the festival will be sensory-friendly, ensuring a comfortable experience for all attendees. 

This year’s See Beyond Festival is made possible through the generous support of Presenting Sponsor Lewis Contractors, along with major sponsors Giant Landover, Marshall Craft Architecture, Maury Donnelly & Parr, Penney Design Group, and media sponsors Baltimore Fishbowl, Baltimore Banner, and WTMD/WYPR.
