Many businesses benefit tremendously from CicLAvia, some noting record sales, with thousands of potential customers passing by open storefronts throughout the day. We encourage you to participate, even if it’s just by greeting people who pass by your front door. This is a great opportunity to engage potential customers who, even if they don't shop on CicLAvia day, may return time and time again.

Customer engagement ideas include:

  • Plan on being open the day of the event
  • Make your storefront visible with signs, banners and sandwich boards
  • Bring your business outside. If you have permission to use the sidewalk in front of your business, feel free to bring products, music or seating outside. (Please note: under the terms of CicLAvia’s permit, no stationary objects are allowed in the street itself.)
  • Advertise your business before the event. To encourage participants to stop by your business on the day of the event, you can offer a CicLAvia special or discount. Metro will list your business for FREE on their website. Send the name of your business, discount offer, website link, and address to [email protected] by July 31st. Please limit text to 140 characters with spaces.
  • Help get the word out in advance. Put up a CicLAvia flyer or give CicLAvia flyers to your customers. Contact [email protected] for a link to a flyer download.
