Meeting your neighbors, having fun with the family, great food, live music, riding your bike with no cars to dodge –– Is there a better way to spend a spring Sunday?
April 9th is the date for the Bayview-Dogpatch Sunday Streets Festival – our turn to play host for an event held throughout the city on Sundays in March to October. This is the ninth year for the Festival, founded by Livable City, a nonprofit committed to an ambitious range of programs aimed at making San Francisco a greater place to live and backed by a host of supporting agencies and volunteers.
Sunday Streets is a prime example of that mission, with its emphasis on clearing the neighborhood of cars so people can enjoy walking, bicycling and just hanging out in an atmosphere that will help you appreciate Bayview even more.
The idea is to create a temporary environment of open space with recreational opportunities, to spark physical activity, support community building, and show people the benefits and possibilities of public spaces.
The setting is the 3rd Street corridor, car-free from 22nd Street to Donner Avenue. Activity Hubs will be set up along the route, with an exciting collection of things to do, see and experience – all free – sponsored by local merchants, nonprofits and community groups. On the bill are live music, food trucks (with an emphasis on healthy eating) and lots of fun for kids.
So be sure to be a part of the Sunday Streets community by coming out to enjoy the fun. You’ll also be taking part in an effort that includes more than 400 volunteers, hundreds of local nonprofits and small businesses, generous sponsors, and city agencies.
