Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln invites you to be part of

2018 Streets Alive!

Route Spots Filling Up!

      Reach Thousands in One Afternoon      
Streets Alive! is a great awareness opportunity! Our free outdoor movement festival, one of Lincoln's premier events, is Sunday, September 23, from 1 - 4:30PM. Over 80 exhibitors, entertainers, food and produce vendors, and fitness demonstrators have already signed up!
 
This unique  celebration reaches 4,000 - 6,000 adults, children, and families with positive messages about active living, good nutrition, health and support resources, and community engagement.  Streets Alive! is closed to traffic along a nearly two mile route lined with exhibitors and entertainers.  It is family, kid, pet, and wheelchair friendly.   
  
What's New 
New Park Shelter - This year at Streets Alive! we will unveil the Streets Alive! Community Development Project, an outdoor living and learning center in Belmont Park. Lincoln's Mayor will officiate at a ribbon cutting ceremony, scheduled for the 1 PM kickoff, bringing additional excitement and attention to Streets Alive! Learn about the project and meet our sponsors.
 
Fun Run/Dog Walk - Before Streets Alive! kicks off, kids, families, and dogs will be racing the Streets Alive! route, beginning and ending at the new park shelter between 12:30 - 1 PM.  We expect about 100 runners and walkers - many of which will stay for Streets Alive! providing an opportunity for your organization to reach more people.  Learn more about the Fun Run.
 
Exhibitors     
  Streets Alive! is a great outreach opportunity to promote the mission of your organization and make our community healthier by providing needed information and resources.  Several exhibitors new to Streets Alive! have signed up, bringing more visitors to the festival.  Want a great way to bring festival-goers to you?  Make your display interactive - engage people to help them remember your mission or the health, support, or educational resources you are providing.  Promote yourself on social media and bring even more people to you.  No booth fees - set up help if needed, with parking reserved for exhibitors.  We provide the tables.
