On March 11, Sunday Streets kicks off its 10th anniversary season in the Mission – from Duboce Ave to 26th St, Valencia Street transforms into to a car-free community space for all to enjoy.
In a neighborhood with a high concentration of children and families, Sunday Streets provides much-needed open space for kids to run, bike and play. Roll, walk or pedal to institutions like The Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts and Poder, or longtime businesses like taqueria Puerto Alegre and Dog Eared Books.
Despite changing demographics, the densely-populated Mission remains home to a large Latino population and a high number of small immigrant-owned businesses. Multiple bus lines and two BART stations make the Mission a transit hub, and popular restaurants and clubs draw patrons from across the Bay Area.
Sunday Streets two annual events in the Mission celebrate the area’s rich history and local offerings, giving both residents and visitors a chance to experience the area’s murals, art and diverse mix of businesses in an accessible, community-driven setting.
