What is Open Streets?

Open Streets Logo

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 2018, Fort Collins Open Streets events will feature tactical urbanism projects along the one- 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.

2018 marks the fifth year Fort Collins has hosted Open Streets events. Come Ride the Route!
