hat could be better than two traffic-free miles full of free health and wellness resources, join-in fitness and sports demonstrations, fresh produce, music, dance, art, and kid’s activities on a Sunday afternoon? Not much—unless it’s part of a whole weekend of fun.

What, Where, and When is Streets Alive!? Streets Alive!, our FREE annual outdoor movement festival, encourages people to get off the couch and get moving by lining the streets with nearly 100 exhibitors, performers, and active fun for the whole family. Family, pet, and wheelchair-friendly, people of all ages and abilities can enjoy a great Sunday afternoon where they can walk, run, bike, skate, push a stroller, or propel a wheelchair throughout the route. Streets Alive! is a mobile festival, changing neighborhoods every two years. This year and next, the festival will be hosted by the South Salt Creek/Cooper Park Neighborhood on Sunday, September 22, from 1–4:30 pm. Visitors can enter or exit anywhere along the route.
