Sunday Streets Tenderloin #2
September 8th, 2019 | 11:00am – 4:00pm
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.
