Where will the Birdland Caravan be?
The caravan will officially hit the road on Friday, February 7, with two buses making stops at a variety of community events across the northern and eastern regions of Birdland. All fans are then invited to join players and coaches at The Greene Turtle in White Marsh for a guest-bartending happy hour from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The caravan will continue on Saturday, February 8, with events across southern Maryland. Fans are welcome at two meet-and-greets throughout the day, with one taking place at Susan Campbell Park in Downtown Annapolis, and the other located at Old Ellicott City’s La Palapa Grill & Cantina. The two groups will end the day at Calvert Brewing Company in Bowie for a guest-bartending happy hour with representatives from the Bowie Baysox from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The caravan will wrap up on Sunday, February 9, with events across western Maryland. One bus will travel to Westminster, where students and fans are welcome for a meet-and-greet at McDaniel College. A second bus will join representatives from the Frederick Keys at Carroll Creek Amphitheater in Downtown Frederick for a meet-and-greet with fans. The two buses will meet at Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick for the caravan’s final event from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
