Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll

The Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll, presented in association with the Baltimore Avenue Business Association (BABA), will return this year on Thursday, June 15th and Thursday, September 7th, from 5:30pm – 8:30pm.  During this unique event, University City’s Baltimore Avenue between 43rd and 52nd Street showcases its businesses with $1 bargains from neighborhood favorites, ranging from bites from signature restaurants to pet supplies to theater tickets. The event also showcases new businesses along the constantly growing commercial corridor.

The Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll has become a signature event for the neighborhood, routinely attracting crowds into the thousands. To go along with the dollar deals are live music, family entertainment, and more.
