Urban identity is a representation of local aspects and can be viewed as a potent foundation for sustainable development. Streets as a major element of urban environment play an important role to state the urban identity since everyone experiencing the city through streets. Streetscape becomes an immediate source of visual information for user's perceptions of the environment and makes a general impression of the city. Imageable streetscapes might represent the broader identity of the city. Based on a study of several major streets in Bogor, this paper intends to discuss that merging cultural heritage into the streetscape can enhance the streetscape character and confirming the urban identity. As a former colonial city, Bogor is rich with tangible and intangible heritages from local culture as well as Dutch, Chinese and Arabic. Street festivals cultural events as an expression of cultural heritages are held periodically at certain streets. A survey of both residents and visitors shows that cultural events and street festivals have contributed positively to the street sense of place and imageability, hence it can reinforce the urban identity.
