About Sunday Streets in the Mission
The Mission Sunday Streets will take place on Valencia St from 26th St to McCoppin Hub Plaza. Sunday Streets is a pet friendly event.
Activities and more
Just a few of the highlights from our season finale will include live music, free bike rentals and demos, performances from ABADA-Capoeira San Francisco, children’s arts and crafts, board breaking demos by Quantum Martial Arts – San Francisco, interactive art installations, health and wellness activities, and free bike repair from PODER (SF), Bay Area Bike Mobile, and REI.
Dance lovers can choose from Zumba, Belly Dance, and Breakdance lessons or head straight to the Swing, Cuban Salsa, or Oldies Dance parties. Open space enthusiasts can pickup an activity guide for a self-guided tour of the Valencia Street parklets or just enjoy the 1.5+ miles of car free streets in the heart of the Mission district!
