Like any great neighborhood festival you see a lot of your neighbors just hanging out, like the Treksters and Fishboy, and entering Hampden Idol.
Our diligent and friendly judges, Sarah Jennings, reigning Hampden Idol, Lee Gardner, editor of the Baltimore City Paper, and Aaron Henkin, host of WYPR's The Signal.

The first annual The Great Baltimore Mac Off was a huge success, raising money for the Hampden Food Bank and offering an amazing array of mac and cheese creations from amateurs and professionals alike.
