Open Streets Minneapolis allows everyone to experience their streets in a new way.

1st Ave N from Washington Ave N to 8th St S
For the past six years, streets in Minneapolis have transformed to allow residents to experience their city in a whole new way — by bike, by skateboard, however they please. We call this Open Streets Minneapolis, and it has grown from one event in 2011 to eight events all across the city in 2016!
Open Streets Minneapolis is the perfect chance to promote healthy living, local businesses, sustainable transportation and civic pride in Minneapolis. On multiple days throughout the year, we create miles of safe, car-free streets so that residents of all ages can walk, bike, shop, participate in spontaneous play activities, and get to know one another.
We hope you’ll join us this year on a street in your own neighborhood, and enjoy it from a different perspective. Come wander the Open Streets and have some fun! You can even bring your dog.
And of course, it’s free!
