Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll

The Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll, presented in association with the Baltimore Avenue Business Association (BABA), will return in 2020 in June and September. Stay tuned for more details on how we're celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Dollar stroll!

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. 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.



In 2019 we once again accepted community food vendors to participate in the Dollar Stroll, and for the first time this year we also invited 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. 

We have received our quota of applications and are now currently closed to food and merchandise vendors for the September 12th Dollar Stroll. Email Margaret Starke if you would like to be added to our list of potential vendors for 2020.  



Thank you to our 2019 sponsors:
