What is Open Streets?

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
