Come dance in the streets with Sunday Streets car-free route along the Western Addition’s main corridors! Fillmore and sections of Fulton and Baker Streets will be open to pedestrians, cyclists, roller-skaters, toddlers, families, seniors and more on September 22.

Open streets transform neighborhood roadways into a free, temporary park with plenty of space for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re playing chess in the streets, dancing to live music, bringing the kids for a hula-hoop session, worshipping at an outdoor religious service or simply getting your daily exercise.

Take a variety of public transit options to celebrate local establishments like music venue the Boom Boom Room, after-school hangout Miyako Old Fashioned Ice Cream for deli lunches, and the African American Art & Culture Complex for gallery exhibits, theater performances and classes.

Check out hubs on Lower Fillmore and Baker at Hayes and explore local businesses and organizations with the Explore Local GuideCommon Cents Passport and Market Square and explore the neighborhood’s rich history as an African American hub of art, culture and creation.

This fall, Sunday Streets second Tenderloin event of the season provides open, car-free streets for kids, families, seniors and residents, celebrating one of the city’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods. Home to large apartment buildings and many SROs, the area’s culturally diverse population includes a high percentage of families.

New this year, the inaugural Getting There Together Celebration comes to Civic Center in conjunction with Sunday Streets. This party features and celebrates seniors and people with disabilities with an Interactive Resource Fair and an All Abilities Open Air Gymnasium with movement and wellness classes, plus a Main Stage featuring performances by local seniors and people with disabilities

In a neighborhood with low car ownership that is often dominated by auto traffic, Sunday Streets transforms roadways into accessible, open space for the whole community. Walking or biking the route provides an intimate way of interacting with the area’s array of authentic and affordable restaurants, unique architecture, small businesses and nonprofit services. Pick up an Explore Local Guide for your key to all things local – grab a banh mi or bubble tea, learn about the area’s history at the Tenderloin Museum, or explore Larkin’s Street’s Tenderloin Community Garden.

Besides providing safe, open recreational space accessible to the district’s families, youth and seniors, Sunday Streets works with local residents, businesses and nonprofits to create programming tailored to the unique needs of the district.
