What is Open Streets Minneapolis?

 

Open Streets Minneapolis is part of a global movement to make streets places that put people first.

During these free, family-friendly events local nonprofit Our Streets Minneapolis partners with the City of Minneapolis to temporarily close major thoroughfares to car traffic, opening them to people biking, walking, rolling, and connecting with neighbors and local businesses.

Open Streets Minneapolis events help us experience streets as public spaces where communities thrive. These events spark transformative changes in how people think about streets.

At each Open Streets Minneapolis event, local businesses, artists, community groups, and institutions come out into the street to play.

All Open Streets Minneapolis events planned for 2020 were canceled due to risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about how we made this decision here
