Celebrate our milestone with us – Sunday Streets SF returns for its 15th season in 2023 with new event formats in five neighborhoods, plus the 3rd Annual Phoenix Day block party program, inviting all San Francisco residents and visitors to make joyful memories in the streets.

Sunday Streets, San Francisco’s community-powered open streets program, invites all residents and neighbors to celebrate its 15th anniversary, featuring three community block parties, two signature mile-plus routes, and the Third Annual Citywide Phoenix Day.
