Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll

Save the date for the first-ever Baltimore Avenue Saturday Stroll! On Saturday, September 25 from 12pm to 4pm, all are welcomed to stroll up and down Baltimore Avenue to visit the amazing local small businesses and restaurants. Although we won't be doing dollar deals this time around, participating businesses will offer Stroll specials and discounts during the event. Plus, we'll be setting up a special block-party area on 48th near Calvary and scheduling live music and interactive activities along Baltimore to add to the fun.

Instead of dollar deals at the event, we're encouraging people to show support by purchasing $1 raffle entries for Baltimore Avenue Prize Packs, featuring gift cards and items from local businesses. Every dollar raised by raffle ticket sales will be reinvested into participating businesses. Click the button below to see a list of participant offerings and to buy your tickets!



Unfortunately, we are not able to welcome community vendors for this fall's Baltimore Avenue Saturday Stroll due to permitting limitations, but we look forward to welcoming them back at a future Dollar Stroll. If you are a local vendor who would like to sell your wares at a future Dollar Stroll, email Margaret Starke to be added to our outreach list.
