#626GoldenStreets in 6 Points
Golden Streets is a FREE event! But bring cash or card to sample SGV treats and support local businesses along the route!
YOU get to decide where you start and finish. There is no right or wrong way to experience the event.
All forms of non-motorized transportation are permitted, including walking, biking, skating, scooting, jogging, running, ambling, and strolling.
Golden Streets is NOT a race. There are no finisher medals or awards. Only miles of smiles.
Share the road. Please stay right and exercise caution so everyone can have a safe, enjoyable day.
Don't forget to stop, enjoy, and take a picture! Share your best snapshots on social media with the hashtag #626GoldenStreets for chances to win 626 swag and more post-event!
Family-friendly activity zones to stop, rest, relax, and maybe even meet #GabeTheSasquatch in person will be interspersed across the May 19th event route. Each hub will feature different things to see and do for participants of all ages, including:
live performers and entertainment;
inflatable obstacle courses, climbing walls, and games;
arts, artists, and crafts;
vendors and exhibitors;
electric bike/scooter/car demos;
City sticker challenge: collect a FREE city sticker (while supplies last) in each hub you visit;
Activity hubs will also include core services such as water and restrooms; free bike and roll valet (strollers, skateboards, scooters, bike); and spaces to relax and recover. For a detailed list of hub activities and offerings, please visit the Activity Hub page and be sure to check back before the event as performer schedules are subject to change and additional things to do are being added weekly.
There are several of ways you can participate with 626 Golden Streets, including:

The cost of staging multi-city open streets events is significant. Indeed, without the generous support of individuals, institutions, and businesses, 626 Golden Streets simply would not be possible. Donations of any and all sizes are greatly appreciated, and tax-deductible thanks to non-profit event facilitator ActiveSGV. Thank you for your support!
