Sunday Streets Excelsior #2
October 20, 2019 | 11:00am – 4:00pm
On October 20, Sunday Streets closes out a season of open streets with a return to the Excelsior’s main corridor. From Silver to Geneva Avenue, enjoy a car-free Mission Street, filled with exhibits, live music activities and open space from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
With a route over a mile long, a car-dominated roadway transforms into a temporary park, providing plenty of space for residents to roll, walk, bike, exercise or simply hang out. Open streets increase community engagement and foot traffic, showcasing the area for visitors and giving locals a chance to see it in a whole new, walkable light.
Visit Activity Hubs at Cotter, France and the Persia Triangle, where residents can experience a pop-up community park hosted by the Excelsior Action Group and Friends of the Persia Triangle, who are working to make the park a permanent neighborhood fixture. Enjoy live music, activities and more – plus, bring your pet for the Rose Ann Harris Pet Parade starting at 1pm, honoring the neighborhood activist and animal lover.
Funded through a community action grant from the Excelsior Collaborative, pedicabs will offer free rides for seniors and people with disabilities to tour the open streets.
Along the car-free route, the SF Public Library’s Excelsior Branch will hold their Tricycle Music Fest featuring The Alphabet Rockers and Flying Angels Chinese dance troupe. At the southern end, dance in the streets to live music onstage from the Excelsior Outer Mission Merchants Association’s (EOMM).
