Sunday Streets is San Francisco’s open streets program that transforms miles of city streets into car-free community spaces for kids to play, seniors to stroll, businesses and organizations to connect, and neighbors to meet. Sunday Streets was inspired by the 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, the nonprofit Livable City has grown Sunday Streets into one of North America’s premiere open street programs serving 100,000 residents 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.
