Updated March 2020 – Sunday Streets is a program presented in partnership with SFMTA, the San Francisco Department of Public Health, the City, San Francisco County and Livable City, a non-profit.
Inspired by the initiative called Ciclovía in Bogotá, Colombia, Sunday Streets is a series of fun and free events that allow local communities to transform 1 to 4 miles of streets that are usually congested with cars, into community spaces. Those events reclaim streets where children can play, the seniors walk, the organizations connect and the neighbors meet more easily. They offer fun and free activities organized by local non-profit associations, community groups and small businesses.
We love being able to walk around Fillmore, sections of Fulton and Baker Streets, on this coming Sunday, September 22nd when the area will be closed to cars.
Sunday Streets with also the schedule of activities such as a fashion show for dogs (you read correctly …), reptile petting zoo, ping pong, music, free loans of bikes and scooters …
You will find all practical information here.
