Sunday Streets car-free route stretches down The Bayview’s main corridor of Third Street, where commuters catch the T, the city’s first new light rail line in more than half a century. Make the day yours with fun, free exhibits and activities.

Home to the largest Black community in San Francisco, the area features family-owned coffee houses, legacy businesses, art studios, and community gardens, plus the sunniest weather in the city.

The Bayview and Dogpatch neighborhoods are connected by over 100 years of shared history – based on the heavy industry that formed the backbone of San Francisco’s infrastructure. Dogpatch has experienced a transformation in the last decade, its industrial landscape shifting to embrace designers, restaurants, craftspeople, and more.

Sunday Streets works with community groups and local partners to create fun, friendly spaces for locals and to activate street corners and storefronts to engage visitors, showcasing spots like soul food restaurant Auntie April’s, arts center Bayview Opera House, and neighborhood favorite Sam Jordan’s Bar and Grill.


Each Sunday Streets is made possible with the support and dedication of volunteers like you. From event prep and neighborhood outreach to staffing the event, there’s something for everyone
