On Sunday, June 10, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is activating 3.6 miles of Marietta Street and Howell Mill Road for Atlanta Streets Alive - Westside, connecting Atlanta's Downtown attractions to the bustling Westside and up to Underwood Hills. From 4:00 to 8:00 pm, the street will be closed to cars and open for people to walk, roll, bike and play!

The fun kicks off Downtown, at the intersection of Marietta Street and Peachtree Street where you can join in the official opening of the street followed by a parade of the routeParade lineup is at 3:30 pm for a 4:00 pm launch. FREE bike decorations available while supplies last!

After the opening program and kickoff parade Downtown, make your way through nine neighborhoods visiting Activity Partners and Route Hosts along the route for a wealth of interactive experiences hosted by community organizations, local businesses and our sponsors. You can also enter or exit the route at any cross street at any time during the four-hour activation. 

Atlanta Streets Alive is FREE and fun for all ages. Bring your friends and family, and share in the experience of enjoying our city streets as public space!

The Details

    1. It’s FREE and for EVERYONE. No matter the age, ability or neighborhood you rep, even if you have no clue what exactly Open Streets is, get out and onto the street. We promise you'll like it!

    2. Hop on the route wherever is most convenient for you. Remember there’s no beginning or end and the flow of people is like a two way street -- it goes both ways!

    3. The streets are open for you to explore our city’s neighborhoods and local business districts without the intensity of car traffic -- stroll or roll to eat, shop, play, socialize or simply enjoy the outdoors. The possibilities are endless.

    4. Opt out of traffic! Getting to Atlanta Streets Alive is easy by MARTA train or bus, by bike or any human-powered mode of transportation. If you have to drive, then with friends/family is always best. You can enter/exit the car-free Atlanta Streets Alive route anywhere along the intersecting roads.

Through Atlanta Streets Alive, we create an environment we hope will evolve into tangible, communal changes – including infrastructure changes. All streets in Atlanta should be safe for everyone to use.

The Marietta Street Resurfacing Project will break ground the week after our Atlanta Streets Alive. Come out to celebrate and show your support and visit AtlantaBike.org to see our vision for turning Howell Mill Rd. into a “Complete Street.”
