Top things to do in 2017 in the Baltimore area

The new year is here, and it's likely that while you were busy thinking of a list of resolutions, you forgot to map the fun part — your plans. Lucky for you, we have you covered, with a list of some of the top 2017 events to look forward to. And plenty of them can tie in with your new goals, too. Want to laugh more? Check out the comedy shows happening this year. Looking to get serious about your fitness? Opt for a fun 5K or set your eyes (and legs) on the Baltimore Running Festival in October. And if you're just looking to have a good time, well there's plenty of that here, too. (For big upcoming concerts, check out this gallery.) 

This is by no means an exhaustive selection — and the events here are subject to change. But this gallery should help you start planning a fun and fulfilling new year. Don't feel like clicking through the gallery? You can also find a list version here.
