Event Details

“Sunday Streets 2022” Street Festival & Block Party (SF)

Sunday Streets SF will be returning in 2022 with the program’s big, beautiful mile plus long routes running from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm in six historic neighborhoods between April and September.

And the second annual “Phoenix Day” will be celebrated citywide on October 16th, 2022.

Inspired by the Ciclovía in Bogotá, Colombia, Sunday Streets SF are free, fun events empowering local communities to transform miles of streets into car-free community spaces for kids to play, seniors to stroll, organizations, and businesses to connect and neighbors to meet. Sunday Streets SF has grown into a beloved institution since its start in 2008 and aims bring tens of thousands of open streets lovers back together again and help celebrate the City’s opening in true San Francisco style from the Bay to the beachside.

The 2022 season of Sunday Streets SF will be an opportunity to continue the City’s progress on combating COVID-19 by reaching people at events with low-barrier and on-site mobile vaccination and testing services through the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

Livable City invites all San Franciscans to join the fun this year by attending, exhibiting, volunteering, and working at a historic Sunday Streets event or hosting a block party, sidewalk sale or family fun hub on Phoenix Day. For more information, visit SundayStreetsSF.com.

This densely populated neighborhood houses the highest number of families with children, has one of the highest rates of car-free households, and has the least amount of park space per capita in San Francisco. Few neighborhoods make a better case for transforming streets into recreational space for playing and building community.
