Baltimore Homecoming is a gathering of Baltimore’s most accomplished natives and alumni from around the U.S. and the world.

Our mission is to bring Baltimore city’s visionaries, entrepreneurs, activists, artists, doers, and leaders together with notable Baltimore alumni to celebrate the city that made us while manifesting a new vision for the future.

Let’s AMPLIFY Baltimore.

Baltimore has always been home to innovators, intellectuals, makers and doers.

Baltimore’s history is filled with great men and women who have shaped it into the city it is today. From Thurgood Marshall to Johns Hopkins, Harriet Tubman and Babe Ruth — the unwavering spirit of Baltimoreans reverberates through every neighborhood.

Our city is heir to their tradition of creativity, energy and optimism.

Our 2020 Homecoming was postponed due to the pandemic, but we used much of this time to explore new possibilities and ideas to propel our vision forward. Reshaping how Baltimore alumni network with local changemakers actively brings people together to manifest a new tempo of progress.

A city in motion — inspiring our next phase

Through an annual Homecoming conference, we’ll spark new connections over dinner with local innovators, explore the expanding city through daily impulse excursions, and manifest a new vision for the future. You’ll hear from our inspiring Homecoming Heroes and Baltimore’s leading startup founders over three days, while contributing to our diverse network of people, programs, investors, and ideas making our city shine.
