Sunday Street’s longest route runs through the Outer Sunset and parts of Golden Gate Park, following the city’s western edge along the super-scenic Great Highway, providing car-free streets and fun, free activities for all.

This coastal neighborhood has a high concentration of families, children and seniors, and nearby Ocean Beach and the SF Zoo draws visitors. Come see why locals love Henry’s House of Coffee, check out the park’s own Bison Paddock, or explore local art at the Great Highway Gallery. Surfers frequent beachside cafes, and there are plenty restaurants to choose from, whether you’re craving hot pot, sushi or brunch.

Long before the event, Sunday Streets works with merchants – including outreach to monolingual business owners – to craft a fun and accessible day that meets the needs of the Sunset’s residents, small business owners, and community groups.
