Dance. Bike. Play!

Experience your streets
in a whole new way!

Open Streets Minneapolis brings together community groups and local businesses to temporarily close major thoroughfares to car traffic, and open them up for people walking, biking, skating, and playing. This community event is in its sixth year, and is co-sponsored by the City of Minneapolis.

More than a street festival, Open Streets Minneapolis gives residents an opportunity to explore their neighborhood and local businesses in a safe, fun, and family-friendly way. It encourages the use of active transportation and healthy living, and has a goal of giving residents an opportunity to rethink our streets as public space.

Open Streets Minneapolis events take place all quadrants of Minneapolis, and in Downtown. Open Streets Minneapolis is an initiative of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, presented by the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota (Blue Cross), and co-sponsored by the City of Minneapolis.

 

Kite.pngWalk Bike Minneapolis!

With 1,800 miles of sidewalks, Minneapolis is a great place to go for a walk.  118 miles of on-street bikeways and 92 miles of off-street bikeways (as of 2014) make it a great place to go for a family bike ride too. OPEN STREETS MPLS events create even more miles of safe, car-free streets so that residents of all ages can walk, bike, participate in spontaneous play activities, and get to know one another. It's free fun for the whole family. We are excited to have been invited to hold even more new events, and look forward to working with local residents, community groups, neighborhood groups, and businesses to make sure the events are a huge success!

Al contar con 1,800 millas de banquetas, Minneapolis es un gran lugar para salir a caminar. Hay 118 millas de carriles para bicicletas en las calles y 92 millas de ciclovías fuera de la vía pública (hasta el 2014), lo cual hace que sea un gran lugar para ir a dar un paseo en bicicleta en familia también. Los eventos OPEN STREETS MPLS crean aún más millas de calles seguras y libres de automóviles para que los residentes de todas las edades puedan caminar, andar en bicicleta, participar en actividades de juego espontáneas, y lleguen a conocerse unos a otros. Es gratis y divertido para toda la familia.
