The City of Irvine is excited to celebrate community, connection, and clean air through its first-ever car-free open streets event, CicloIrvine, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 4. Residents, visitors, and businesses are invited to stroll, bike, and roll along nearly 2 miles of streets closed to cars along Barranca Parkway and Harvard Avenue.

CicloIrvine highlights the City’s commitment to community engagement, sustainability, and environmentally conscious means of travel and encourages participants to experience Irvine’s public spaces and local businesses in a new and reimagined way with live music, art, and engaging activities for all.

“We are overjoyed to bring this type of open streets event to our Irvine community for the first time,” said Mayor Farrah N. Khan. “CicloIrvine will celebrate our residents and businesses, and the City’s commitment to sustainability, in a fun and engaging manner. It is another testament to our City’s innovative approach to being a forward-thinking, climate-smart City of the future.”
