The 2018 Open Streets Minneapolis continues this Sunday, September 23rd with Open Streets Nicollet. Back for its fifth year, Open Streets Nicollet will take place from 11 AM to 5 PM on Nicollet Avenue from West Lake Street to West 46th Street. Last year Open Streets Nicollet attracted 13,500 people biking, walking, and playing in the street.
Open Streets Minneapolis events give local residents a chance to experience their streets in a whole new way – by bike, skateboard, wheelchair, or on foot. Open Streets Minneapolis closes major thoroughfares to motor vehicle traffic and opens them up for programming and fun from local business, residents, and community groups. These family-friendly events are free for all to attend, and are a great way to better get to know your community.
