Safer Sidewalks

Almost 200 tripping hazards have been ground away on Adams Avenue sidewalks, thanks to a grant from Supervisor Ron Roberts. The AABA contracted with Precision Concrete Cutting for the work. Adams Avenue is now a safer place to run or walk as you explore everything this great neighborhood offers.

Upcoming Events

Adams Avenue Unplugged: Saturday, April 29 from 12-10 pm

Save the date for our annual Spring music festival featuring acoustic unplugged sets inside Adams Avenue’s restaurants, bars, coffeehouses and galleries. We’ll have 100 performances on 30 stages, with headliners John York, Vetiver, Jack Tempchin, Tom Brosseau, and Yale Strom and the Hot Pstromi!

This free musical walkabout takes place along a two-mile stretch of Adams Avenue, from University Heights on the West through Normal Heights, and into parts of Kensington to the East. Being able to pair the Avenue’s unique dining and drinking establishments, each with their own special ambiances and selections, with free musical performances, makes Adams Avenue the place to be on the last weekend of April.

Parking is limited to residential neighborhood streets and can get quite congested. MTS bus routes 2 & 11 will service the neighborhoods. There is free trolley that will run from noon to 10 pm along Adams Avenue. Wear comfortable walking shoes and plan on getting your exercise by exploring all the avenue has to offer.
