UMBC’s neighboring community of Arbutus is celebrating its 125th birthday this year—and you’re invited! The Arbutus 125 birthday celebration is taking place on Sunday, October 17, 2021, from Noon to 5 p.m. on East Drive in downtown Arbutus.
UMBC is partnering with the Southwest Visions Foundation and the Greater Arbutus Business Association on an 1896-themed street festival featuring live music, food, games, a petting zoo, and much more. The celebration will include appearances from the UMBC Chess Team and our very own comfort dog, Officer Chip.
You can get to the festival area for free using the UMBC Transit Arbutus line; check Transit Tracker for schedules.

We hope to see you there!
