Inspired by open street projects all over the world, RVA Streets Alive! is about closing streets to cars and opening them to the public -- for one day -- to create a whole new health, sustainable and vibrant city street experience. FREE and open to every to do what you wish -- run, walk, bike, roller blade, WHATEVER! Make sure to check out the vendors lining the streets with free activities for the entire family.
RVA Streets Alive! is on Saturday, June 21 and runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The route is Broad Street from 2nd Street to N. Henry Street and Brook Road from Adams Street to Leigh Street. Click here to see a map of the route.
Any activity that promotes an active and healthy lifestyle is encouraged along the streets which will be closed to vehicular traffic. We are looking for a diverse mix of different sports organizations, active lifestyle groups, preventative health & wellness programs, and any other organization that wants to promote physical activity. To apply to be a vendor, please fill out this form. Vendor registration ends June 6.
