Light City Docent Tours

Light City Docent & Ambassador Program


An in-depth opportunity to learn about the artworks featured in Light City, and share this knowledge with attendees through guided tours of the festival. Ideal for students looking for professional development opportunities, and working professionals with an interest in learning more about contemporary art practices!


Like the Docent program, the Ambassadors receive in-depth trainings to learn more about the artworks featured at Light City. Ambassadors work within specific areas of the festival, and are the front-line of face-to-face contact for festival-goers. Talk about the artwork, help people find their way around the festival, and see what it takes to work on a large scale production like Light City!

Eco Hybrid Tours are operating at 7:00 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays during the festival. 


Youth Arts Council Tours are operating at 8:00 pm on Saturdays during the festival.


Eco Hybrid Tours: These exciting tours, co-lead with Waterfront Partnership, will focus on a selection of artworks that have a sustainability or environmental message as well as Healthy Harbor initiatives focused in Inner Harbor Locations. Highlights include the oyster gardens along the waterfront piers, the floating wetlands, the rain catchment areas in Pierce’s Park and Mr. Trash Wheel. This tour is ideal for anyone interested in hearing more about Light City and the Waterfront Partnership’s environmental sustainability efforts, and runs for between sixty and ninety minutes. Special thank you to Waterfront Partnership. These tours depart from Guest Services #1 next to the Maryland Science Center.


Youth Arts Council Tours: Join the Baltimore Youth Arts Council at Light City Festival! Eleven high-school aged members will guide Light City attendees on two different tours. Choose between the insightful Identity Tour and the interactive Movement & Sound Tour for a special Light City experience brought to you by Baltimore City youth. Meet in front of the Pier 5 Hotel by 7:50 pm and look for teenagers with Light City t-shirts and glowing crowns! We can’t wait to see you there!
