About Open Streets Minneapolis
Open Streets Minneapolis transforms major City streets into car-free places for one day. Open Streets are events that:
- Occur on a street for a limited amount of time, typically 6 hours
- Shut down car traffic during the event
- Allow people to walk, bike, and roll down the street
- Have programming and free activities
Open Streets events do not have a designated beginning or endpoint. Events take place on major business and commercial corridors. These events encourage visitors to discover businesses, parks, and activities along the route.
In 2022, a total of 102,000 people attended five Open Streets Minneapolis events. Since 2011, there have been 59 Open Streets Minneapolis events.
