Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll

The Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll, presented in association with the Baltimore Avenue Business Association (BABA), will return in 2019 on Thursday, June 6th and Thursday, September 12th, each from 5:30-8:30 PM. 


During this unique event, University City’s Baltimore Avenue between 43rd and 52nd Streets showcases its businesses with $1 bargains from neighborhood favorites, ranging from bites from signature restaurants to pet supplies to theater tickets.


We are once again accepting community food vendors to participate in the Dollar Stroll, and for the first time this year we are also inviting community merchandise vendors to apply to be official participants. The purpose of selecting official vendors is to ensure all vendors are in compliance with Philadelphia permitting codes, whether Philadelphia Health Department codes and regulations for food vending, or the Department of Licenses and Inspections for merchandise vendors.

The Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll has become a signature event for the neighborhood, routinely attracting crowds in the thousands. Live music, family entertainment, and more accompany the deals, making this a great event for people of all ages.
