La Posada

SAT DEC 18 | 5 - 8PM


Procession: Creative Alliance (3134 Eastern Ave., Baltimore, MD 21224) to Our Lady of Pompei Church (3600 Claremont St, Baltimore, MD 21224)

The word posada means "shelter" or “inn” in Spanish. The tradition of the Posada recreates the Bible story of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem and their search for a place to stay. The community is invited to join a singing candle-lit procession through the streets of Highlandtown starting at Creative Alliance and stopping by local businesses until arriving at Our Lady of Pompei Church. The night ends with a fiesta, traditional food, performances, raffles, and piñata breaking to celebrate that all of us are welcome here!

Everyone is invited to dress-up as angels, shepherds, or the three kings!
