Getting to the Fest!

Our Fest is part of the City of San José’s Viva CalleSJ’s six-mile  open streets event!

Viva CalleSJ is car-free event that closes off six miles of San Jose’s most interesting, historic, and eclectic streets. These streets are open only to people-powered vehicles— like legs, bicycles, skateboards, roller skates, wheel chairs, and baby carriages. No electric, hydrogen, vegetable oil, or gas powered vehicles may ride along the Viva CalleSJ.

Group Bicycle Rides to and at the Fest:  

Join San Jose Bike Party’s two group rides:   “Groovin” and a “Kidz Bike Party Ride”. We will post time and place with hyperlinks to their Facebook event pages when these rides are finalized.
