Doylestown Borough continues its recurring schedule of Pedestrian Zones, returning to Restaurant Row on historic W. State Street.

Doylestown, PA - Doylestown’s new scene is outdoors. Through the Summer the historic streets of the borough saw a rotation of street closures designed to encourage safer shopping and dining. These recurring events have brought much-needed support to local businesses during an especially challenging time. As we enter the Fall, the Borough plans to continue with street closures as long as weather permits.

Next up on the calendar is a return to the origin of the concept. On Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19 the block of W. State Street from Hamilton Street to Court Street will be closed from 5:00 PM - 11:00 PM each evening. With open roads free of vehicles, opportunities are created for adjacent businesses to expand their outdoor seating, shopping, and more.

In addition to the Pedestrian Zone, locals and visitors can expect an expansion of outdoor seating and shopping opportunities throughout the entire downtown. These remain difficult times for our small business community and your support is as important as ever. 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.

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.

Our local shops, restaurants, services, and cultural destinations need your support now. We invite you to explore Doylestown and discover what makes our small town so special. To learn more about Operation Doylestown, reopening initiatives, and returning to Doylestown, please see the link below.
