On Sunday, June 3, 24 blocks of Berkeley will close down to car traffic from the north end at Rose Street and Shattuck Ave in the Gourmet Ghetto to Durant Street downtown heading east to Telegraph and then south to Dwight. Bikes, scooters, strollers, and wagons are welcome, as are pedestrians.
Sunday Streets Berkeley 2018 features an expanded route and themed block parties along Shattuck and Durant and Telegraph.
Local vendors will line the edges of the street offering food, information, and experiences all in the name of building community. Restaurants will open their doors (and hopefully their bathroom doors) many offering special snack options or patio seating where there isn't normally any.
Look for face painting, juggling shows, arts & crafts, and live music. Kids will be able to play giant chess games, hula hoop, climb, and draw with chalk in the street, among other amusements.
Sunday Streets is a great family outing for 24 car-free blocks. Stay as long or short as you like, bring your own food or eat at a restaurant, and walk right down the middle of the road, worry-free. See you there!
