Grand Old Day is St. Paul’s first rite of summer. It takes place along Grand Avenue, which runs all the way from the Mississippi River to downtown St. Paul. However, most of the action takes place between Fairview Avenue and Dale Street, a stretch of Grand Avenue that has something for everyone.
You’ll find restaurants that range from pizza places, Asian food (Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese), upscale, bar & grills, a few national chain restaurants, hip coffee shops and much more.
There are also recognizable shops like Pier 1 Imports and J. Crew, but also dozens of local businesses from funky boutiques, flower shops, art supply stores, places that carry specialty apparel and so much more.
Don’t forget all the food and entertainment options. There will be local restaurants and concessions selling food and beverages in tents all along Grand Avenue all day, but there will also be a host of other options, including some interesting people-watching and some great live and local music.
