Streets Alive! Ithaca 2016

Streets Alive transforms streets into a place for people to walk, roll and play! It's part of a movement to make walking & biking safe and accessible in Ithaca

A fundraising campaign for Bike Walk Tompkins

Help Make Ithaca a Safe and Fun City to Bike, Roll, and Walk For All

Streets Alive! Ithaca is part of a growing movement to make walking and biking safe and convenient for everyone in Tompkins County. Streets Alive! draws crowds from near and far to celebrate all modes of active transportation and Ithaca’s vibrant community. About one mile of city streets are transformed into public space for four hours on one Sunday in May and September, welcoming bikers, walkers, strollers, dancers, artists, kids, and people of all ages.  

Streets Alive! costs about $1 per foot of event space. 

Bike Walk Tompkins is raising funds to cover event expenses for Streets Alive and demonstrate strong community support for biking and walking. Event expenses include transportation for gear and barricades, staffing, local bands, insurance, volunteer food and t-shirts, printing and outreach, and more. Invest in safe and enjoyable biking and walking in Ithaca with your donation to cover costs of one Streets Alive! events with the vision of more car-free days in the future. Please donate today!  

Streets Alive! is currently made possible with the generous in-kind support donated by Bike Walk Tompkins, community donors like you and with grant funding from the Park Foundation and the Tompkins County Tourism Program.
