“Sunday Streets SF” transforms the City’s busy streets into car-free community spaces.
Remember, way back before COVID, when San Francisco used to open up some streets on weekends for easy strolling? It was an awesome way for kids to play, neighbors to meet, and businesses to connect with customers. We know it’s been a while, but Sunday Streets SF is coming back, with its newest Rise Together activities to begin this weekend!
Mayor London Breed announced a rollout of “small-format programming” starting this month, with the usual large-scale format scheduled to return in October. The Covid-safe Rise Together activities will consist of events in Chinatown and along the India Basin waterfront. All activities follow current COVID-19 precautions and mask-wearing is required.
Walkway Weekends in Chinatown will consist of a car-free Grant Avenue, between California to Washington Streets. Every Saturday and Sunday from 11am-4pm, you can stroll through San Francisco’s historic Chinatown for some shopping, a refreshing cup of boba, delicious dumplings, and much more.
Bayside Saturdays is an exciting self-guided adventure along the brand-new pedestrian and bike path on the India Basin and Hunter’s Point waterfront. You can browse the waterfront’s businesses, new art installations, and more while enjoying free drop-in fitness classes, giveaways, live music, and small business specials! Check out Bayside Saturdays every Saturday in April from 10am-3pm.
“Sunday Streets is all about celebrating the connections that make our communities and our city strong, and these connections are more important than ever as we move forward with our recovery from this pandemic,” said Mayor Breed. “Although we need to take care to do things safely by staying outdoors, keeping things small, and staying masked, this is an exciting part of our reopening for all of our residents and families. Sunday Streets Rise Together programs will give friends and neighbors the chance socialize and come together safely after having been apart for so long.”
