Why does 1st Mariner Arena easily sellout crowds? The Arena’s location in downtown Baltimore is central to three major metropolitan areas. The size and configuration of the venue allows performers to connect with the audience on an intimate level while still providing the seating capacity to comfortably accommodate an enormous crowd. Going forward, we will continue to provide Baltimore’s deeply rooted fans with the opportunity to see the biggest acts in the world.
1st Mariner Arena not only hosts the world’s top musical acts but also provides world-class family entertainment. Radio City Christmas Spectacular Christmas Tour, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, Monster Trucks, Blue Man Group, Arenacross, Sesame Street Live, WWE, and The Wiggles are just a few of our perennial family favorites.
The Arena has also opened its doors to fans of Cirque du Soleil, gymnastics, tennis, closed circuit boxing, Professional Bull Riding, and mixed martial arts. We are also home to MISL Champions, the Baltimore Blast.
In addition, 1st Mariner Arena has personal one-on-one coordination of event outings for community and professional groups for annual family touring shows, such as Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Sesame Street Live, Disney on Ice, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as well as select sporting events.
