Atlanta Streets Alive is about closing streets to cars and opening them to the public — for 4 hours — to create a whole new healthy, sustainable and vibrant city street experience.

Sunday’s weather prediction calls for sunny skies and warm temperatures, perfect for an outdoor event! So, gather your family and friends, and spend the afternoon with us at Atlanta Streets Alive in the historic West End.  This is sure to be an event you will not want to miss.

Each event aims for these three objectives:

  1. To celebrate the neighborhood (which changes and expands year to year)
  2. Expose attendees to all kinds of fun outdoor activities
  3. Encourage more Georgia residents to take to the streets by foot or by bicycle

The end goal is to help build a happier, healthier and more sustainable Atlanta. Get out there and represent Castleberry Hill!
