VivaCalleSJ (pronounced Vee-Va Ka-Ye SJ) is a free recreational program that closes miles of scenic San José streets. Come see what it’s like on Sunday, October 11, 2015 from 10:00AM-3:00PM.

VivaCalleSJ brings people and communities together to walk, bike, skate, play, and explore the explore the city like never before!

VivaCalleSJ’s Downtown and Eastbound route will take participants from the heart of San José’s downtown, through the center of the city, west through the unique and charming Calle Willow Business District, all the way to the East Side and Emma Prusch Farm Park. It is not a race, so you can start anywhere and have as much fun as you want, in either direction.

VivaCalleSJ is inspired by similar Open Streets programs hosted in Los Angeles; San Francisco; Portland; Guadalajara, Mexico; and other cities around the world. The name combines the Spanish “Viva Calles,” which can mean both “the streets live” and “long live the streets.”

VivaCalleSJ is managed by the City of San José’s Department of Parks, Recreation, and Neighborhood Services, with outreach and engagement support provided by Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition. VivaCalleSJ has been generously supported by Knight Foundation, which believes that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged.
