Doylestown Borough is returning to W. State Street for back-to-back Pedestrian Zones in October.
Doylestown, PA - Open-air Pedestrian Zones continue through October in Doylestown, PA to drive support for the small business community. Following successful events on N. Main Street and E. State Street, the focus is now returning to Restaurant Row on W. State Street. Locals and visitors can look forward to additional street closures, expanded outdoor dining and shopping, and more.
On Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17 the block of W. State Street between Hamilton and Clinton Street, fondly known as Restaurant Row, will close to traffic from 5 PM - 11 PM. The following weekend will feature a second closure on W. State on Friday, October 23 and Saturday, October 24. Both weekends will close a portion of the road to vehicular traffic to allow for expanded outdoor dining and shopping opportunities. 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 streets. Parking will also be available at the new County Parking Facility at nearby Broad and Court for a modest fee.
These recurring events have brought much-needed support to local businesses during an especially challenging time. In addition to the scheduled Pedestrian Zones, locals and visitors can expect an expansion of outdoor seating and shopping opportunities throughout the entire downtown. Business owners and the Borough are working hard to ensure visitors have a safe and responsible experience. Face masks are strongly recommended while not seated at restaurants and social distancing must be observed as we continue to fight the spread of COVID-19.
Pedestrian Zones beyond October are being considered but are largely dependent on the weather. Updates will be released as plans are finalized for the upcoming season. To learn more about Operation Doylestown, reopening initiatives, and returning to Doylestown, please see the link below.
