Uptown (Washington Road)
The Washington Road business district is nearing completion of the Vibrant Uptown streetscape project. Vibrant Uptown 2.0 will begin this year, addressing streets and nodes apart from Washington Road, but integral to the Uptown district experience.
Washington Road community events include First Fridays, a street fair held on the first Fridays of June, July and August; the Uptown Market, a farmers market from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays starting mid-May and continuing through October, in the South Lot, across from Washington Elementary School; the Artists’ Market, a juried arts and crafts show slated for October 1-2 in the Academy Avenue parking lot; and Lebo Light Night, a November kickoff to the holiday season.
The Beverly Road business district runs along Beverly Road from Overlook Drive to Ralston Place. Beverly Road offers shoppers a great mix of retail and services, from restaurants to boutique shops to fitness and wellness centers. Beverly Road businesses sometimes host sidewalk sales and special events, including Beverly Brite Nite in December.
