No Cars Sunday, NoHo

No Cars Sunday, NoHo

Carfree Day = No Car Day = No driving the 405 day when there’s no Carmageddon. Every year on September 22, we leave our cars at home, walk or bike in our neighborhood to shop, visit, picnic, exercise, run errands, and, ultimately, help the environment.

We can do this, North Hollywood. The NoHo Arts District is a one-mile neighborhood so we can walk, ride our bikes, skate, etc. We have a fabulous park with a variety of sports, dance studios, specialized fitness classes, one-of-a-kind restaurants and bars, tons of fun events and 20+ theatres. We can definitely ditch our car in NoHo.

The purpose of World Carfree Day is to raise awareness about the need to reduce traffic congestion and create a greener environment in our communities. It was established in 2000 as a grassroots movement by the World Carfree Network to coincide with the European Mobility Week. It has grown to involve official and unofficial participants in over 1,000 cities in 40 countries.

If you are looking for some planned things to do, a group of Studio City and Sherman Oaks residents have organized a car free day with a community hike, free yoga and BYO picnic and participants receive discounts at participating retailers.
