  • Overview

    Center Square Association has been bringing people together and growing the sense of neighborhood and community for 71 years, recognizing the wisdom of Helen Keller’s words, alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. The initial beautification efforts continue today with one of the most enduring events of the summer – self guided tours that give a unique glimpse into our city’s historic urban neighborhoods. The summer tour is a highly anticipated annual event for history and architecture lovers alike.

    In 2021, because of the pandemic, what was once a tour of private homes and gardens evolved into The Stupendous Stoop Stroll, a day-long free celebration of mid-city living at its best. It will be held on Saturday, June 29, 2024 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    This year’s event will include:

    - The Stoop Stroll – residents will decorate their stoops and strollers will be able to view upwards of 60 uniquely decorated stoops featuring not only flowers, but displaying many different creative themes which grow out of the residents’ imagination. No two stoops are alike. It’s a friendly neighborhood competition with attendees voting for their favorite houses. The top three vote-getters receive a garden-themed prize.

    - A Summer Market of curated vendors and crafts persons will be in our neighborhood park, Hudson-Jay Park, throughout the day, adding to the festivities.

    - The Gilded Age Walking Tours which include stops where scenes of season two of HBO’s The Gilded Age were filmed in the neighborhood and behind the scenes stories. Read more details about the walking tours. Tickets sold separately.

    Stoop Stroll suggested donation - $10
    The Gilded Age Walking Tours tickets - $15 (until June 22, when price goes up to $20)

    Stoop Stroll is rain or shine. Rain date for walking tours TBD.
