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 2024, 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 Active Transportation: Encourages walking, cycling, skating, MARTA and all forms of active transportation to improve public health, reduce traffic congestion, and promote environmentally friendly modes of travel.
  • Encourages Community Engagement: Provides a platform for community members to come together, fostering social interactions, and building a sense of community and positive engagement with City Departments.
  • Showcases Businesses + Culture: Highlights local businesses, artists, and cultural activities along the open streets. Supports local business sales and growing audiences for developments along the route.
  • Is Moving Atlanta Forward: Supports the City of Atlanta Moving Atlanta Forward initiative.
