Open Streets Minneapolis is a free event bringing together community groups and local businesses to temporarily close major thoroughfares to car traffic, opening them up for people walking, biking, rolling, and playing.

Why Open Streets University of Minnesota + Motley?  Motley is a historic name for the area on the western edge of Prospect Park along the University of Minnesota campus. Today, Motley is a project to create community in this area through creative urban planning that better serves the present & future needs of the folks who live there.  There will be an electric vehicle showcase and Minneapolis Bike Tour with Music by the White Keys.  Come enjoy being around great people, music and food.

Residents and visitors explore their neighborhood in a safe, fun, family-friendly environment. Each event encourages people to use active modes of transportation, engage in healthy living, and rethink our streets as public space. Open Streets Minneapolis is a unique opportunity to promote healthy living, local businesses, sustainable transportation, and civic pride in Minneapolis.
