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.

Attendance numbers

In 2022, a total of 102,000 people attended five Open Streets Minneapolis events. Since 2011, there have been 59 Open Streets Minneapolis events.

What's next in 2024

The City is committed to supporting Open Streets events in 2024, just as it has in past years. Stay tuned for more information.
