Bolinas Avenue in downtown Fairfax will be closed on Sunday for the second-annual Streets for People.
Bolinas will be closed between Broadway and Elsie Lane from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the event, which is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Streets for People will include local shopping and dining on the street as well as activities on Bolinas and throughout the town.
More about Sunday’s event from the Streets for People organizers:
“Sustainable Fairfax, the Fairfax Chamber, the Town of Fairfax and Fairbuck are collaborating to put on the event, featuring shopping, outdoor dining, dancing, yoga, hula hooping, a street mandala, zero waste education, live music, activities for children, and new this year, a health & wellness zone in Bolinas Park with massage, qigong, tai chi, yoga, and even a laughing workshop. This year the event is expanding outside of the closure area to other areas of town, including School Street Plaza and the North Side of Sir Francis Drake. (Click “here” for a list of activities, event features, and participating businesses).”
Streets for people will include a complementary bike valet and free bike “check overs” by the Fairfax Cyclery.
The event was modeled after a car-free program in Bogota, Colombia called “Ciclovia,” where 70 miles of roadway are closed every Sunday. San Francisco has a similar event with its regular Sunday Streets program.
The Fairfax Council showed unanimous support for the festival last year after some of the councilmembers asked that the event not include alcohol.
