Bike, bus, train or walk your way to a free, engaging and fun way to explore the city. Enjoy two miles of car-free streets and discover local food, music, shops, culture, dance and games with family and friends. Grab a picnic from a local restaurant or sit down and eat while you enjoy the view of all kinds of people enjoying Santa Monica. Shop at local businesses, discover new stores and revisit old favorites. The route is primarily along Ocean, Colorado, and Main throughout downtown Santa Monica.
COAST is free and open to everyone. We encourage you to come out and join us for a lively Sunday in Santa Monica.
If you are wondering, “what’s COAST?”
Santa Monica’s COAST Open Streets Festival marries the concept of shutting down the street to cars with a cultural festival – back for its second year! This year, the City of Santa Monica is pulling off even more live music, interactive art stations, and loads of food. The route is two-miles long, so can easily be walked, biked, skated or navigated by wheelchair.
A few of the Top Things COAST’s organizers are most excited for:
- All-string female Mariachi band Las Collbrí (Farmers Market)
- Hip-hop dance group Antics (COAST Stage, 1 p.m.)
- Kiel Johnson and reDiscover Center build Dream Tree from repurposed materials (Sustainability Zone)
- Twenty Minute Treks, guided tours from poets and historians (Ocean & Broadway, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.)
