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!
RVA Streets Alive! is FREE and open to everyone!
The event runs from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. For a schedule of individual vendor activities, click here.
RVA Streets Alive! will take place on a 2.5-mile loop in Richmond that is bounded by the 14th Street and Manchester bridges on the east and west and by Byrd Street and Commerce Road on the north and south.

On-street parking is free in downtown on weekends. In addition, Standard Parking will offer $5 event parking in their three surface lots located from 3rd Street to 6th Street between Cary & Canal.
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.
