Bash is Back! Come together for Baltimore’s waterways on September 9th, 2023.

Come enjoy food and drink from Barcocina– Mexican inspired cuisine in historic Fells Point, kids’ activities, fishing on the pier, a silent auction, and more!

Blue Water Bash is the best of both worlds: 3 hours of celebration that also provides vital support for Blue Water Baltimore’s programs across the watershed. On this 15th anniversary, we hope to raise $120,000 to fund:

  • Comprehensive water quality monitoring at 49 locations across the watershed
  • Upstream restoration efforts, our first line of defense against stormwater pollution
  • Cultivation and sale of thousands of native plants at Herring Run Nursery
  • Unceasing accountability measures for sources of pollution in our watershed
  • Education and outreach to water quality champions of all ages … and so much more!


We are thrilled to offer our annual Blue Water Bash Auction again this year. The Bash Auction will formally launch on Thursday August 31st at 4 pm, and close on Saturday September 9th at 4:30 pm—30 minutes before the conclusion of Blue Water Bash. Our auction will be available online at 2023bash.cbo.io. You do not need to be present at Blue Water Bash to win.

Looking back at 2022

Bash was a blast in 2022! After pandemic-related delays and cancellations to the event in 2021, we finally gathered to celebrate Blue Water Baltimore’s progress in April 2022—where we raised $119,223 for Baltimore’s waterways. See our photos here:
