Presented By Unified Community Connections
Hoodstock is a grass roots music festival with its roots based on the rock/folk music scene of the late '60s and early '70s mixed with contemporary music. Originally founded in 2004 as a neighborhood event before its popularity made all the Baltimore region its "hood" Hoodstock is now a major fundraiser to benefit Unified Community Connections and all they do to advance the independence of children and adults with disabilities.
Hoodstock is considered to be an anti-black-tie charity event where guests “Just Say No to Black-Tie and Yes to Tie-Dye!” It is a casual, laidback, family friendly event where attendees enjoy live music along with good casual food, beer, and wine all for a modest ticket price. Many of the bands that perform include band members who have a direct connection to the mission of Unified Community Connections. Approximately 400 people attended last year raising more than $82,000!

- - Hoodstock is a fundraiser for Unified Community Connections
- - Hoodstock is meant to be the anti-black-tie charity event. It is designed in the fashion of the late '60s and early '70s music festivals where all come casual, relaxed, and enjoy rock/folk music from multiple local and regional bands. Hoodstock does not look or feel like the traditional gala and we think that is a good thing!
