Open Streets Watsonville: Sunday, June 3rd, 2018!


Save the date for Open Streets Watsonville 2018! A day of play in the streets on downtown Watsonville—bike, dance, picnic, stroll in the street. Learn about local non-profit groups, listen to live music, and experience the joy of open, safe, spacious public space!

Open Streets runs on volunteer power! We need up to 60 volunteers on June 3 for jobs like set-up and breakdown, monitoring intersections, helping with bike rides, and everything in between!

Want to host an activity, game, or performance at Open Streets? We're looking for more individuals and groups to help us activate the street by providing even more resources and entertainment for participants.  Click below to email the Event Director and let us know what you have in mind!

Thank you, Open Streets Santa Cruz 2017 sponsors!
