San Francisco Sunday Streets is a monthly event where several streets close to car traffic for the sfternoon in a different designated district each month. Each event is unique, 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 ongoing festival runs each year from March through October, always on a Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
San Francisco Sunday Streets started as a smaller festival in 2008. In their first year, they offered 2 car free Sunday events in San Francisco. Today, they offer 8 events a year at local districts around SF.
This is the schedule for San Francisco Sunday Streets in 2019. All event details are subject to change up until the date of the event.
