If you are looking for a pleasant evening out, and want to support nearby small merchants and artists, the Piedmont Avenue Stroll is just for you.  Held on the third Thursday of every month, this is a neighborhood oriented event designed to attract Oakland and Piedmont residents to get to know their local businesses and artists who are, literally, just around the corner.  

Each month, participating businesses and artists invite you to visit them from 6:00-9:00 p.m.. Many offer special discounts or promotions to make your shopping experience even more worthwhile.  Late night entertainment is available as well after the promotional hours.  Those merchants participating can be identified by a bright yellow flag in front of their shop. 

There is a fascinating variety of shopping along Piedmont Avenue.  From the famous Fenton's Creamery through book stores, jewelry shops, shoe and ceramic stores, a wine shop and more, you will have a special time. 

The next event will be held Thursday, February 20th.  If you start at their main website, you can move from there to details on their blog regarding the details of each event, and get a street map to find your favorite places.  Start here: http://www.piedmontavestroll.org/about.html
