The 50th Annual Holiday Stroll comes to Larchmere Boulevard Thanksgiving Weekend 2021

Friday, November 26: 10am-8:30pm
Saturday, November 27: 10am-6pm
Sunday, November 28: 12pm-5pm

Ever since Thanksgiving Weekend 1971, merchants along Cleveland's Larchmere Boulevard shopping district have celebrated Holiday Stroll: a chance to connect with neighbors and friends, ring in the holiday season, and get a headstart on holiday shopping.

Walter Thompson, owner of Gentleman's Quarters at 12807 Larchmere, recalls what he and fellow Larchmere merchants set out to create with Holiday Stroll in 1971 as "the start of something new. We weren't a 'shopping destination' at the time, but we wanted to become one. Through the years it's been nice to see the neighborhood become more diverse and inclusive, and to meet new people and customers at community events like Holiday Stroll."
