New Route featuring Broad Street and Brook Road!
RVA Streets Alive!
June 21, 2014 - Downtown Richmond

For a great photo slideshow of the 2013 event, click here.

Inspired by open streets projects all over the world, this event is about closing streets to cars and opening them to the public — for one day — to create a whole new healthy, sustainable and vibrant city street experience. FREE and open to everyone 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!

Check out highlights from the 2013 event:


RVA Streets Alive! is FREE and open to everyone!
