Seven Open Streets MPLS Dates Announced for 2018

Open Streets MPLS returns for its eighth year with seven events that cover all quadrants of the city including the University of Minnesota.  What started as one event in 2011 has grown into something big that gives cyclists, pedestrians, skaters and skateboarders a new way to see the city without automobile traffic.  These events are a great way to explore these neighborhoods, their local businesses and meet new people in a fun, family-friendly way.  And best of all, they are all free.  So grab your bike, walking shoes, skateboard or skates and enjoy these neighborhood streets that are free from traffic for one day.

Thanks to the Our Streets Minneapolis, the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota (Blue Cross)City of Minneapolis, University of Minnesota Foundation Real Estate Advisers, AARP Twin Cities and All Energy Solar for making these events possible.  These events have brought out thousands of people to see these neighborhoods in a way that is not possible during the rest of the year.

Local community members plan out these events and around 100 volunteers are needed for each one.  If you would like to volunteer for any of the Open Streets MPLS events, visit the Open Streets Volunteer page and fill out the sign up form.
