San Francisco Sunday Streets

Run, Walk, Bike or Dance on the Streets of SF

San Francisco Sunday Streets is a monthly event where designated streets close to car traffic. Each event is different, as the local neighborhood plans out the day's activities.

Each temporarily car-free zone becomes open to the public for a few hours of live music, free activities, and other outdoor fun. There are also areas for people to walk, bike, run, and dance.

In addition to fostering strong community spirit, these monthly events also raise awareness about living a healthy lifestyle. Throughout each event, you will find a number of free health screenings and guided workouts.

This event usually runs each year from March through October. In 2016, Sunday Streets will run from April to November.

Most districts finalize their activities a week or two before the event, so check back again if the activity you want to attend has not yet finalized their plans.

2016 Schedule

This is the schedule for San Francisco Sunday Streets in 2016. All event details are subject to change up until the date of the event. The idea for each event is to build a day where the community can mingle and have fun outdoors in each of SF's diverse districts.
