Ridgefield Summer Sidewalk Stroll 2020 Brings Shopping Outside
Shops all around town are “Bringing it Outside” this summer! The Ridgefield Summer Sidewalk Stroll launched on Wednesday, July 1!
During this summer-long event, which will run through September 7th, our wonderful local shops are extending shopping to the sidewalks. Enjoy the summer weather and check out all that Ridgefield has to offer - al fresco! Town-wide sidewalk shopping is a great way for us all to get back outside to enjoy our beautiful town while adhering to safety and social distancing guidelines.
Partnership with nonprofits Another component of the summer-long event will help local nonprofit organizations who have dealt with hardships due to the pandemic. Each business can ‘adopt’ an organization in town to help promote their missions. Businesses can share pamphlets and information about their ‘adopted’ nonprofit to create exposure for our amazing arts, cultural, and other nonprofit organizations in Ridgefield.
Ultimately, the goal is that over the course of the summer, the Summer Sidewalk Stroll can expand to include special outdoor events from the town’s arts and cultural organizations. We will be announcing additional summer events as they are planned.
Along with Ridgefield’s many outdoor dining options, the Summer Sidewalk Stroll will provide a fun outdoor experience for our community and visitors alike.
We’ll see you at the Stroll!
When enjoying this event, please adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear your facemask, for the safety of everyone.
