Alexandria Sidewalk Sale

August 15 & 16, 2020

Alexandria’s summertime deal-snagging tradition returns August 15 & 16, 2020, as 60+ boutiques throughout Old Town and Del Ray offer deeply-discounted summer merchandise. Don’t miss your chance to find incredible bargains and unique treasures in Alexandria, the D.C. region’s Shop Small destination. Shoppers are invited to don their most stylish face covering and follow the map of participating stores to safely stroll outdoors along Alexandria’s red brick sidewalks for end-of-summer savings. The event is led by Visit Alexandria in partnership with the City of Alexandria, Old Town Boutique District, Old Town Business Association and Del Ray Business Association.

Free Parking & Pedestrian-Only Hub

In Old Town, the City of Alexandria is offering free parking at all City meters on Saturday (parking at meters is free on Sundays). Parking in Del Ray is always free! New this year, the 1100 block of King Street will be closed to cars as a pedestrian-only hub of the event.
