A group of local businesses are working together to organize a sidewalk sale this weekend to drive much needed support for their shops.

Doylestown, PA - As our small businesses community continues to work towards recovery from COVID-19, it is important to remember they still need your support. A group of independent businesses are collaborating to organize a sidewalk sale this weekend, July 25-26, throughout Doylestown. Participating stores will have merchandise outside for safer shopping. Several shops plan to offer special sales in an effort to draw much needed support.

The sidewalk sale will take place in parallel with Doylestown’s next pedestrian zone. On Friday July 24th and Saturday July 25th North Main Street will be closed to traffic. The block of Main Street between State Street and Court Street is scheduled to close to vehicular traffic from 5:00 PM - 11:00 PM. Temporary detours will be in place for traffic and free parking will remain available in the County Parking Garage at the corner of Broad & Union. Parking will also be available at the new County Parking Facility at Broad and Court for a modest fee.

Additionally, on Saturday June 25th a pop-up concert will be held on S. Pine Street following the sidewalk sale. Live performances will take place outdoors from 6:30 - 9:30 PM with plenty of space for attendees to spread out and enjoy themselves. Bring your own food and drinks. Tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.com/e/distance-picnics-on-pine-street-tickets-113266216302. All of the funds raised will benefit the musicians and sound techs working the event.

Our local shops, restaurants, services, and cultural destinations are working hard to reopen. We invite you to enjoy this weekend's events while supporting our small business community. The Borough of Doylestown, alongside local business owners, is working to ensure the safety of our community and visitors.
