Santa Monica's 4th Annual COAST Open Streets Event

10am – 4pm

Location:  Main Street, Ocean Avenue (from Wilshire Blvd to CO Ave), CO Esplanade + SM Pier

This year’s COAST invites everyone to handmake or decorate real or imaginary people-powered devices and showcase them at the event.   On September 15, everyone is invited to this free city celebration of a more people-powered and sustainable Santa Monica where they can showcase their favorite real or imaginary car-free way of getting around. In addition to the two miles of car-free streets filled with roaming musicians, hands-on activities and an assortment of participatory classes, the event will be a pageant of attendees’ creativity.

Free, artist-led workshops in early September will provide inspiration and materials to create and decorate costumes, conveyances, walking pieces or devices (check event website starting in late July for workshop dates + locations).  People are also welcomed to decorate on their own or collaborate with friends, family and neighbors to create a larger than life moving installation that will be featured the day of the event. Attendees will bring, wear, or ride their creations to the streets on event day, where there will be opportunities to win prizes for creativity and innovation.
