Meet the DCYF Family at Sunday Streets

Sunday Streets is a series of free, fun events empowering local communities to transform car-congested streets into car-free community spaces for kids to play, seniors to stroll, organizations to connect and neighbors to meet. DCYF will host a table at every Sunday Streets in the 2018 season! Come to our table and we'll hook you up with info about programs and services, a tote bag, and cool DCYF shades.

The next Sunday Streets will take place on May 6 in the Tenderloin from 11am to 4pm. The Tenderloin Sunday Streets will kick-off a collaboration between DCYF and Play-Well TEKnologies : we will host a LEGO building station at our table at Sunday Streets Tenderloin, Sunday Streets Sunset District on June 3, and Sunday Streets Mission District on July 15. We hope to see you there!
