August on The Ave




August on The Ave will unfold with the SOFT LAUNCH of the Hill District’s Tiny Retail™ initiative – Tiny Retail™ ALPHA. This is a month-long event of retail activations targeting local home-based businesses as well as retailers aspiring to do business in the Hill District, social programming, civic engagement, community participation, and place-making. 

August on The Ave will transform Centre Avenue into a complete street festival for one month. Come out and mingle with event-goers as they enjoy local goods and services from businesses on the corridor; and partake in retail offerings from Tiny Retail™ participants as well as other awesome activities.
