University City District is now accepting applications from community food vendors to participate in our September 15th Dollar Stroll as official participants. The purpose of selecting official vendors is to ensure all food vendors are in compliance with Philadelphia Health Department codes and regulations and aren’t at risk of being shut down during the event. Selected vendors will be included on event maps and marketing materials for the event.
