Community Events, Arts and Culture

UCD cares about University City, and we work to unite people around our corridors, businesses, art, parks, and public spaces. Popular signature events such as the Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll, the 40th Street Summer Series, University City Dining Days, Movies in Clark Park, and the Clark Park Farmers' Market all serve to bring people together. We work to continually elevate University City's status as a world class neighborhood with world class amenities.

40th Street Summer Series

Each summer UCD brings dance, live theater, music, and a few surprises to University City.

Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll

During the Dollar Stroll thousands of people walk the streets enjoying $1 specials, live music, and street performances.

University City Dining Days

University City’s version of “restaurant week” is Dining Days. Participating restaurants offer a prix-fixe three-course dinner special for $15, $25 or $35. The “3 courses, 3 prices” concept accommodates University City’s diverse culinary options.

Movies in Clark Park

A family friendly five-week offering of free outdoor screenings beginning in August, with various weekly theme and local food vendors offering meals and treats. The movies will run from August 26 to September 9, and screenings begin at 8 pm. 

Clark Park Farmers' Market
