University City District (UCD) will hold our second Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll on Thursday, September 15th, from 5:30 - 8:30 PM. The event draws thousands of neighbors and visitors to enjoy dollar deals from participating vendors. In 2022, we expanded the price levels vendors can offer from $1 deals to deals for $1, $3, OR $5. 

We are now accepting applications from both community food vendors and community merchandise vendors to join in this event as official participants. The purpose of selecting official vendors is to ensure all vendors are in compliance with various City agencies, including the Philadelphia Health Department and the Philadelphia Department of Licenses & Inspection (L&I). We also include all selected vendors in our marketing materials, including on our Dollar Stroll web collateral and in printed maps handed out the evening of each Dollar Stroll event.  

If you are a community vendor interested in selling either food or merchandise, please email Margaret Leidy Starke, Senior Manager of Events and Community Partnerships, at [email protected]. The deadline to apply is Friday, August 26th, 2022. 

Please note: Only vendors selected by University City District and approved by the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Special Events will be able to operate at this event. All others without prior approval will not be able to vend during the event, and vendors who set up without being named an approved participant are in danger of being shut down by License and Inspections. Only vendors in good standings with the Department of Revenue will be considered, per the permitting requirements of the City of Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections. Priority will be given to vendors based within the 5 zip codes of West Philadelphia (19104, 19131, 19139, 19143, or 19151). Previous vending at the Baltimore Avenue Dollar Strolls does not guarantee your spot.
