Sunday Streets is excited to announce the first new route in five years, spanning Folsom Street from Essex to 10th Street. Home to the LGBTQ and SOMA Pilipinas Cultural Districts, as well as the East Cut, SoMa West (coming soon) and Yerba Buena Community Benefit Districts, South of Market borders Potrero Hill and the Mission and contains many smaller neighborhoods, including South Park, South Beach and Financial District South. Pick up an Explore Local Guide at Sunday Streets info booths for a map of local businesses and resources. After the 1906 earthquake destroyed the area, SoMa was rebuilt with wider streets (many of which, like Folsom, are one-way) to accommodate industrial development. Today, SoMa is still home to factories and light industry, as well as SROs, tech offices, arts incubators, nightclubs and new housing developments. This mixed-use neighborhood blends residential, commercial, cultural, institutional and entertainment uses and is known for its live-work spaces, design and art production. Dance the night away at DNA Lounge, visit the collection at the Prelinger Library, tour world-class museums and arts centers like MoMa, The Contemporary Jewish Museum, The Museum of the African Diaspora and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Enjoy a meal at SoMa Streat Food Park. Support community organizations like United Playaz and the Pilipino Senior Resource Center. And don’t forget to explore the area’s tucked-away alleys, expansive murals, small businesses and turn-of-the-century industrial architecture. At the MCD booth, celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Sunday Streets with vintage magazine badges! Peruse an assortment of periodicals from the archives and create a wearable snapshot of the past.
