Connecting Bay Area communities through celebrating the local economy
By: Solano Avenue Association
"We are extremely excited to bring back the Solano Avenue Stroll", stated Solano Avenue Association, Executive Director, Allen Cain. "Due to Covid-19 restrictions on large gatherings, we have been working diligently since 2019 to reconnect with our local community members and businesses."
The Solano Avenue Stroll is known as the East Bay area's largest street festival and serves over 100,000 families and community members. Activities for this year's street festival, include a micro parade, food and craft vendors, games, live music, a free shuttle and more. A complete map of the Stroll's activities can be found using the Solano Avenue year-round app, MOPO; including participating vendors, booth locations, entertainment schedule, even where to get your hot dog and kettle corn.
This year's sponsors include the City of Albany, City of Berkeley, Albany Subaru, Mechanics Bank, Pivot Point Commuter Hub, Waste Management, Andronico's Community Markets, Belmont Village Senior Living Albany and Gordo's Taqueria.
"Solano Avenue is home to almost fifty new businesses since 2019, so what a fantastic chance to get to know Solano 2.0", shared Solano Avenue Association, President, Jennifer Hansen Romero. "So many of the businesses are locally owned and family operated."
