BERKELEY Annual Events

Solano Stroll  September.  Free.  Held on Solano Avenue, this mile-long block party is the oldest and largest free street festival in the East Bay.  The entire 20-block length of Solano Avenue is blocked off to cars, and sStrollers can browse and munch their way from one end to the other.  A big claim to fame is that in 1996 buffalo Bob and Howdy Doody shared the role as grand marshall.
