Sunday Streets are free community events that roll into Eugene every summer and are brought to you by City of Eugene Transportation.
The events activate Eugene neighborhoods and business districts by opening several miles of car-free streets for people to ride, roll, and walk. Activity Centers along the route host bike repairs, free helmets and lights, fitness classes, dancing, yoga, slacklining, interactive play areas, live music, food carts, and more.
Why Sunday Streets?
Eugene’s first Sunday Streets took place in 2011, connecting the Whiteaker and Downtown neighborhoods. Since then it has consistently grown, becoming Eugene’s largest community event and one of the most popular summer events! Sunday Streets events promote healthy, active living by opening the city’s largest public space—its streets—for people to ride, roll and walk to discover active transportation in a fun, car-free environment.
