Following the Kentucky Derby, the annual Preakness Stakes is run the third Saturday in May at Baltimore’s Pimlico race course with a weeklong celebration leading up to the running.

Preakness Celebration has become a tradition for people of all ages since its inception in 1988. Also known as The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans, this series of special events celebrates the annual running of the Preakness Stakes, Baltimore’s “Super Bowl” and the 2nd jewel in thoroughbred racing’s prestigious Triple Crown.

The biggest party in the mid-Atlantic, Preakness InfieldFest, is back with two epic headliners Grammy Award winners Maroon 5 and multi-platinum rapper Wiz Khalifa! The Beer Garden J├Ągermeister Stage welcomes Nashville-based country band, Little Big Town, British rockers, The Darkness, and regional favorites, Mr. Greengenes. It all takes place May 19th from 12am-12pm.
