Beach Streets is an Open Streets event designed to showcase businesses & neighborhoods.  For a single day, we close a major traffic corridor to cars & open the street to people walking & bicycling. The event attracts local residents & visitors from across the region to explore & discover the area at a slower "foot-traffic" pace. Previous Beach Streets events have attracted more than 40,000 people!

  • Participants of all ages will enjoy family-friendly entertainment at festival hubs along the route, including Wardlow Rd, Atlantic Ave & Houghton Park.

  • Opportunity for participants to discover local businesses & services. Try a new restaurant. Explore a new retail store. Find a business service that suits your needs.

  • Suggested modes of transportation along the route include: Walking, bicycles, wheelchairs, skates, rollerblades, skateboards, etc… Basically anything without a motor (officially marked means of transportation for those with disabilities excepted).

  • The event route is free of vehicle traffic & parked cars, no cars on the street!
