If you are wondering, “what’s COAST?”
Santa Monica’s COAST Open Streets Festival marries the concept of shutting down the street to cars with a cultural festival – back for its second year! This year, the City of Santa Monica is pulling off even more live music, interactive art stations, and loads of food. The route is two-miles long, so can easily be walked, biked, skated or navigated by wheelchair.  

A few of the Top Things COAST’s organizers are most excited for:

  • All-string female Mariachi band Las Collbrí (Farmers Market)
  • Hip-hop dance group Antics (COAST Stage, 1 p.m.)
  • Kiel Johnson and reDiscover Center build Dream Tree from repurposed materials (Sustainability Zone)
  • Twenty Minute Treks, guided tours from poets and historians (Ocean & Broadway, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.)

RSVP / share the Facebook event with your friends.

September: Walk with the Mayor

For the month of September, we join Mayor Ted Winterer and Adopt-A-Walk for a two mile walking adventure that explores one of three neighborhood walking routes.

The walk on September 9th will leave from Reed Park — at the corner of California Ave. and Lincoln Blvd — at 10 am and loop back to Reed Park just in time for all the festivities of the Buy Local Health and Fitness Festival. See our calendar for more information on the event here or learn more on the event website here.

All you need are good walking shoes and your water bottle. The walk will be a delightful 2 mile loop through the neighborhood with the mayor, staff and the YOU!

Dogs, children and strollers are ALL WELCOME!

About the Mayor’s Ride:
Biking (AND WALKING) is better with friends! The monthly Mayor Ride was born at the Breeze One year Anniversary Event with a proclamation from our City Manager Rick Cole. We led the 1st Ride with the Mayor which was joined by the California Bicycle Coalition Board of Directors in January 2017 – This free local event has continued with monthly community bike rides with Mayor Ted Winterer and City Staff since in January with a different theme monthly. This month we are mixing it up with a walk to get a fresh and different perspective of our community. Come meet the Mayor, City staff, and your neighbors while enjoying the Santa Monica sunshine on this conversation paced, lovely walk!

Stay up to date on events all over Santa Monica and the Westside at SMSpoke.org, and here on our calendar. You can also check out Santa Monica City Planning on Facebook
