The seventh edition of Street Delivery starts June 15 whenVerona Street in Bucharest will be closed to cars and will only allow access to pedestrians and to bicycle users. Concerts, fairs and open-air feel-good activities are all part of the program. Many other creative events such as workshops for children, movies, performing arts, civil society manifestations, design and press delivery will take place.
This edition of Street Delivery follows the concept of the Annual Architecture of Bucharest which is ECO – ARCHITECTURE, due to the nomination made by Aphekom Study that Bucharest is Europe’s most polluted city capital.
Among the artists that will perform at this year’s edition are Coma, Luiza Zan & Sebastian Burneci, YellLow, Subcarpati, Classic Beat Orchestra and Robin and the Backstabbers as well as several DJs sets for entertaining the pedestrians during the event.
Street Delivery promotes a city of joy which favors its inhabitants, who need the same attention as the other traffic’s participants. Moreover, Street Delivery is a lobby initiative targeting theBucharestCity Hall. It calls for the widening of sidewalks across Bucharest, the creation of a pedestrian cultural passage onArthur Verona Streetzone which will be extended to Icoanei Garden Park and Cismigiu Garden. The event’s wide array of artistic activities takes place annually on Arthur Verona Street, which is closed to motor vehicles, allowing access only to pedestrians and cyclists. At previous editions, Street Delivery attracted between 20,000 and 30,000 visitors.
