About Sunday Streets

Eugene’s first

Sunday Streets

took place on September 18, 2011 from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m., connecting the Whiteaker and Downtown neighborhoods. There were over 2,000 attendees in 2011 and over 3,000 in 2012. In 2013 we expanded the program to two events, which totaled

over 5,700 participants and more than 200 volunteers

.  2014 brought Sunday Streets back to it's original route along 5th Ave and to a new route in the Harlow Neighborhood with nearly 4000 total participants and volunteers.The events in 2015 broke all records with 4,000 participants at the downtown event, and over 3,100 participants at the Friendly event.

Events again grew in 2016 with 6,000 participants Downtown and 4,150 at the South University event.

 The program continues to grow each year with new activities, participants and routes. 

In 2017, the Eugene Sunday Streets Program is planning to do two events again! July 30th - Downtown + September 17th - River Road plus SIX additional Party in the Park events. Stay tuned for route maps.
