Sunday Streets Berkeley | 17 Block Long Street Party

Sunday Streets Berkeley will take place on Shattuck Ave for 17 blocks from Rose Street to Haste Street. It will be a celebration of local businesses and organizations. Storefronts will be unobstructed, and business owners will be encouraged to promote commerce and visibility by setting out seating on the street, hosting activities, and otherwise inviting interest and community.

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.

People get out and connect with their community in a transformative way. This temporary public space inspires creativity and change for the better, on that day – and beyond. It sounds simple, yet it really is very new and exciting. As of early 2012, there are more than 70 Sunday Streets events in North America. Check out StreetFilms.org for more about Open Streets around the world.

Sunday Streets Berkeley has very much been inspired by Sunday Streets San Francisco’s successful 5 year run. We are so thankful for their leadership, encouragement and sharing of resources and wisdom in producing Sunday Streets Berkeley.
