Sunday Streets Berkeley

October 12, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Sunday Streets (also called “Open Streets”)  closes streets to automobile traffic for a day so that people may use  the space for other physical and social activities. The streets become  parks as people replace car traffic. People walk, bike, skate and dance  and play. Everyone from businesses and community organizations to  musicians and artists use the space creatively, engaging the public and  providing spontaneity and discovery.  

It sounds simple, yet it really is very different and exciting.

People get out and connect  with their community and urban environment in a transformative way. This temporary public  space inspires creativity and change for the better, on that day – and  beyond. As of early 2013, there are more than 70 Sunday Streets events in North  America.

Open Streets events are possible in cities all over the country because of the support of people like you! Donate to help make another Sunday Streets Berkeley possible.

Sunday Streets Berkeley is presented by Livable Berkeley and the City of Berkeley in association with the Downtown Berkeley AssociationNorth Shattuck Association,  Office of Mayor Tom BatesEast Bay Bicycle Coalition, & Ecology Center.

Livable Berkeley promotes sustainable land use and transportation policies to reduce our impact on the environment and make our city more walkable, and more cyclist and public transit-oriented, with vibrant public spaces and commercial districts.
