Sunday Streets is a program of the nonprofit Livable City presented in partnership with the SFMTA, San Francisco Department of Public Health, and the City and County of San Francisco.
Livable City produces an annual season of Sunday Street events that reclaim car-congested streets for community health, transforming them into car-free spaces for all to enjoy. Routes are 1-4 miles in length, with fun, free activities provided by local nonprofits, community groups and small businesses.
Sunday Streets’ mission is to:
Create temporary open space and recreational opportunities in neighborhoods most lacking
Encourage physical activity
Foster community building
Inspire people to think differently about their streets as public spaces
Sunday Streets was inspired by Ciclovía in Bogotá, Colombia and championed in San Francisco by Mayor Gavin Newsom and the ShapeUp Coalition of San Francisco. Since starting the program in 2008 with two events along the waterfront, Livable City has grown Sunday Streets into one of North America’s premiere open street programs with 10 events annually held in diverse neighborhoods across San Francisco.
The magic is made possible by the entire Sunday Streets community, including 400+ volunteers, hundreds of local nonprofits and small businesses, dozens of sponsors and City agencies, and the residents of our host neighborhoods. From the bottom of our heart – thank you!
