Open Streets events are growing across the nation with events hosted in more than 100 American cities. During Open Streets events, the event route is closed to cars but programmed with various activities. In 2017, Fort Collins Open Streets events will feature tactical urbanism projects along the two- to three-mile route, as well as programming by local organizations and businesses. Participants are encouraged to Ride the Route and explore streets that are walkable and bikeable on a daily basis.
2017 marks the fourth year Fort Collins has hosted Open Streets events. This year, our events will bring a new flavor than in the past. Come Ride the Route! For more information on the national initiative, visit openstreetsproject.org.
Come Ride the Route on Sunday, September 17, 2017 along a nearly four-mile route. Our second Open Streets event of 2017 will be from Overland Park to the University Center for the Arts, including: Pleasant Valley Rd., Clearview Ave., Castlerock Dr., Springfield Dr., Pitkin St. through CSU campus, and ends at Remington St. via the S. College Ave. bike/ped underpass.
Our second event of 2017 features a collaboration with Create Places and Colorado State University. Enjoy programming along the route, including food trucks, live music, local artists, and more. Connect with CSU departments and programs, meet local businesses, and enjoy a day in the street, free of cars.
