Have four quarters to spare? How about 100 pennies? That’s all you’ll need to join in the good times on Baltimore Avenue this Thursday.

University City District’s highly anticipated Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll makes its grand return for 2015 this week on Thursday, June 25.

The deal-driven street festival fills Baltimore Avenue from 43rd to 51st streets for the first time this season with $1 food, drinks and goods from more than 30 vendors.

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.

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

Access to the evening festival is totally free, just pay for food and drinks as you go. With more than 30 top West Philly vendors and a handful of food trucks lined up to participate, there will be absolutely no shortage of deals to be had.

So grab a few bucks and head out to hit this summertime street fair. For the complete vendor lineup, see below.

Can’t make the stroll this month? The event will return in the fall on Thursday, September 24.
