University City District’s highly anticipated Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll makes its grand return for 2015.

The popular series features more than 30 West Philly businesses setting up shop on the sidewalk on Baltimore Avenue from 43rd to 51st Streets with a variety of foods, gifts and services available for just $1. The cheap thrills are accompanied by live music and street performances.

The Food and Drink

A wide array of restaurants set up shop outdoors along the sidewalks of Baltimore Avenue. From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., restaurant, bars and vendors will dish out $1 deals of all sort — think mini scoops of ice cream from Little Baby’s, samosas from Desi Village, banana whips from Mariposa Food Co-op, two-minute Muay Thai lessons from 8 Limbs Academy and more.

Numerous food trucks will also set up shop at the event. For brews, report to Dock Street Brewery at 50th Street and Baltimore Avenue to serve up seven-ounce pours of craft brews and pint glasses.

Shopping and Entertainment

In addition to food and drinks, guests can also expect performances from musicians, fire artists, jugglers and more.
