The Dollar Stroll is an annual summer series that sees more than 30 West Philly businesses setting up shop on the sidewalk and offering their wares for just $1. The cheap thrills are accompanied by live music and street performances.

Last year, more than 20,000 visitors packed Baltimore Avenue to take advantage of the summer savings.

The Food and Drink

A wide array of restaurants set up shop outdoors along the sidewalks of Baltimore Avenue. Look for West Philly’s Green Line Cafe to dish hot dogs, carrot dogs and creamy Weckerly’s ice cream. Gold Standard Cafe will provide mini sandwiches, Desi Village will serve samosas and mango lassis and the popular Mariposa Food Co-op to satisfy the sweet tooth with banana whips and cookies.

Plus, deals from Little Baby’s Ice Cream, Dahlak Restaurant, Milk and Honey Market, Vientiane Cafe, Hibiscus Cafe and more will pop up along the avenue.

Numerous food trucks will also set up shop at the event, including the Tot Cart, Lil’ Pop Shop, Milk and Sugar and The Whirly Pig.

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

Also look out for the roving bag pipe player and check out live music from Purples and City Rain, as well as a photo booth, face painting, balloon art, fire artists and more street performers at the 46th Street Triangle.

Scoop up West Philly notecards and patches at VIX Emporium, tickets to preview performances from Curio Theatre Company, edible herb starters from Greensgrow West, swag from the Friends of Clark Park and more.
