What is Atlanta Streets Alive?

Atlanta Streets Alive is a FREE community event series that celebrates Atlanta's urban core and supports local business with temporary car-free streets. Over three Sundays in 2023 from September through November, approximately three miles of Peachtree Street will close to cars and open to people!

Atlanta Streets Alive opens streets temporarily for constituents to bike, walk, skate, dance, and play.  

The events turn the street into a park space that connects our city. Atlanta Streets Alive is not a festival, parade, or a race, attendees can start or stop at any point.

  • Atlanta Streets Alive promotes safe transportation options on our city streets.
  • Promotes healthy physical activity.
  • Supports local business sales and support growing audiences for new developments along the route.
  • Supports the City of Atlanta Moving Atlanta Forward initiative.

Where is Atlanta Streets Alive?

Atlanta Streets Alive 2023 – 2024 will activate midtown and downtown Atlanta on Peachtree Street from 15th Street to Mitchell Street. Meet up with friends and family at a local business or one of activity hubs along the route. Vehicles will be able to cross the Peachtree Street route at APD-monitored traffic crossings.
