Open your mind to Open Streets
Open Streets has a goal to help our community imagine what cities could look like if they weren’t congested by cars and to celebrate the corners of Minneapolis. It’s part of a global movement to make streets places that put people first.
This event is FREE, open to the public, and family-friendly!
In 2011, Open Streets was hosted by Our Streets Minneapolis, and at that first event, an estimated 5,000 people attended, reimagining Lyndale Avenue as a space for biking, walking, community building, and play.
The event features more than 300 participants that fill the streets with artists, musicians, campaigns, food trucks, and more.
According to their website, the goal is “to laser focus on community dreams and needs at Open Streets Minneapolis by partnering closely with neighborhood organizations, local business leaders, and neighbors from every corner of the city.”
Events begin in the early summer and continue through the fall.. All events begin at 11 am and end by 5 pm.
