Hope to see you at SM Open Streets on Sunday, March 31!

We hope to see you at Santa Maria's first Open Streets event on Sunday, March 31 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

This will be the first time Main Street will close from Broadway to Blosser for a street party! There will be about 180 booths with free activities for the family. About 15,000 people are expected to attend.

SBCAN will be giving away vegetable seedlings in our Central Coast Green Team booth and native plants in another booth co-sponsored by California Native Plants Society. Both are in the Eco Zone.

Staff and board members are also involved in other organizations that have booths there. We invite you to stop by those booths: 

In the Art and Culture Zone, check out Santa Barbara County Animal Services and Santa Maria Camera Club (which invites you to take street photography).

In the Cesar Chavez Zone, stop by CAUSE, NAACP Santa Maria-Lompoc and Women’s March Santa Maria Valley.

In the Eco Zone, visit Buena Vista Beautifiers, Food&Water Watch, Los Padres ForestWatch and Safe Energy Now.

If you feel like lending a hand with any of these booths, let them know when you stop by. They might just need the extra help.

SBCAN has been involved in the planning of this event, which is coordinated by SBCAG Traffic Solutions. Parking is on the side streets or at the Town Centers (east and west).
