The “Cicada Parade-a” is a large-scale collaborative art project organized by Formstone Castle Collective that has been on outdoor display around Maryland all summer. Consisting of 170 plaster cicada sculptures uniquely transformed by 170 local artists, this will be your only chance to see them all together in one place: The Peale at Carroll Mansion, in downtown Baltimore.

The Cicada Parade-a represents an emergence from a long period of darkness to sing, make noise, and fall in love with the world again. More information about Cicada Parade-a can be found at

Cicada Parade-artists, sponsors and friends will also be hosting a garden party to wrap-up the project on Tuesday, September 21, from 5pm-9pm.

*Please see additional COVID-19 requirements for visiting.
