We had planned for Open Streets Minnehaha to occur in October this year. Unfortunately, the event will not happen due to risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. You can learn more about how we came to this decision here.
Open Streets Minneapolis events do more than close streets to cars. Each event connects people to local businesses, community resources, and each other. While we are unable to come together to celebrate Open Streets Minnehaha this year, we can still support those local businesses and community organizations that help make Open Streets Minnehaha so fun and unique.
Check out the list below to learn just a few ways you can support Minnehaha Ave any day of the year. Have another suggestion? Let us know on social media or in the comments!
