Play in the streets

San Antonio's Largest FREE Community Wellness Event




What is Síclovía?

Síclovía is a free, annual event organized by the YMCA of Greater San Antonio that turns city streets into a safe place for exercise and play. The family-friendly event encourages residents and visitors to get out, get active, and explore their city through car-free streets. The Y accomplishes this by activating parks, bringing exposure to local businesses, and inviting community organizations. Participants can enjoy walking, biking, exercise classes, activities for youth, treats for their pets, food trucks, and more. The event transitioned from a bi-annual to an annual Spring event in 2024. 

Since 2011, we have encouraged residents and visitors to get out, be active, and explore their city through car-free streets. To date, 1,098,632 individuals have participated in this event.

We look forward to the next Síclovía event, which will take place in the Spring of 2025, celebrating our 23rd event. Síclovía has always been a treasured tradition for fostering community spirit and bringing our community together to celebrate health, wellness, and togetherness. This free community event has provided a safe space for individuals of all ages to participate in exercise and play.

As we progress with our plans, we will keep you informed about important dates, activities, and opportunities for involvement. We encourage you to stay connected with our YMCA social media platforms to receive the latest updates.
