While the nonprofit Livable City has canceled all of its planned 2020 Sunday Streets events they are coming back in a more limited way — closing off two blocks of SoMa to cars, every Sunday through October 18th. Folsom Street between 6th and 8th Streets will be car-free every Sunday from 11am-4pm. The Folsom Street closure is part of the city's
Shared Spaces program geared towards the economic recovery of locally owned small businesses.
Livable City is a San Francisco-based 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to increasing affordable housing, improving transportation, land use, open space, and environmental policies, and supporting grassroots initiatives to make San Francisco a safer, healthier, and more accessible city.
If car-free wasn’t enough, you can also enjoy 2 blocks of daytime outdoor dining, artisan markets, and street art when UNDISCOVERED pops up at modified Sunday Streets in SoMa through October 11th. In the spirit of the original Sunday Streets, this weekly pop-up will provide open space for SoMa residents while supporting local businesses on the two blocks, who plan to offer outdoor dining and curbside pickup for takeout every Sunday.
Participants will include Basil Thai, Trademark/Copyright, Mestiza and the Cat Club. UNDISCOVERED SF is a non-profit venture designed to jump-start economic activity and public awareness of SOMA Pilipinas Cultural Heritage District and will also host curbside pickup retail in support of SOMA Pilipinas Cultural Heritage District economic development goals on select dates.
The SoMa West CBD, Undiscovered SF and Kultivate Labs will help with the outdoor dining effort, providing tables and monitoring customers to ensure they're adhering to mask and social distancing guidelines. Sanitation stations will be at every entrance, along with COVID-19 information and basic health screenings being provided by SFSU’s School of Nursing.
