Come Out Sunday, April 28 on Cayuga and Court Streets

Now in its 8th year and 15th edition, Streets Alive! Ithaca is, at its simplest, a day where the streets are closed to cars and open to people to walk, bike, roll, dance, and play. The possibilities of open streets are almost endless: hula hooping, jump rope, hopscotch, street hockey, frisbee, basketball…

Streets Alive! Ithaca is sponsored by these fabulous organizations


Become a Superstar Volunteer!

Streets Alive! Ithaca is a wonderful event and it takes 100+ volunteers to make it a reality, particularly to help close the streets to cars and encourage people to have fun. From Intersection Superheroes to Photographers and Roving Bike Mechanics, we have a place for you. Volunteers age 16+ from across the community are invited to join our team! An awesome free t-shirt, snacks, and great community fun are included.
