COAST: Santa Monica’s Open Streets Event
September 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
COAST invites everyone to be part of a carnival of wheels, rigs, wings, and feet! Ride your bike, skate around, take a stroll, roll through, and check things out – COAST will have live music, performances, lots of food to eat, and artsy activities.
On September 15, everyone is invited to this free city celebration of a more people-powered and sustainable Santa Monica where they can showcase their favorite real or imaginary car-free way of getting around. In addition to the two miles of car-free streets filled with roaming musicians, hands-on activities and an assortment of participatory classes, the event will be a pageant of attendees’ creativity.
Free, artist-led workshops in early September will provide inspiration and materials to create and decorate costumes, conveyances, walking pieces or devices. People are also welcomed to decorate on their own or collaborate with friends, family and neighbors to create a larger than life moving installation that will be featured the day of the event. Attendees will bring, wear, or ride their creations to the streets on event day, where there will be opportunities to win prizes for creativity and innovation.
WHERE: The event will be held on more than two miles of car-free streets in and around Downtown Santa Monica, including Ocean Ave. from Wilshire Blvd. to Colorado Ave., Colorado Esplanade from 5th St. to and including the Pier, and Main St. from Colorado Ave. to Pier Ave.
Santa Monica Spoke will be on Ocean Ave – north of Colorado with a Kids Bike & Small Wheels Skills Learning course, bike safety checks and interactive decorating activities, plus Suffragette Sash decorating with the League of Women Voters. Celebrating Suffragette 100 year Anniversary, Women’s Vote.
