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 2020, Fort Collins Open Streets events will feature a one- to two-mile route, and free 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.

2020 marks the seventh year Fort Collins has hosted Open Streets events. Come Ride the Route!

Volunteer for Open Streets

Calling all volunteers! We are in need of many volunteers in order to ensure that Open Streets is fun, safe, and and enjoyable experience for all. No experience necessary. Trainings will be scheduled in advance and will include a variety of days and times. Trainings are drop in events, so you'll come anytime during the time frame, complete your training, grab some swag, and be on your way! 

For more information, contact Nick Heimann, FC Moves Active Modes Program Specialist at bmhlaW1hbm5AZmNnb3YuY29t.

Open Streets is a great event for large groups to fulfill volunteer requirements. Volunteers must be 15+ or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Most volunteer shifts involve standing and directing traffic at road closures and helping residents enter or exit the event route. Other opportunities are available but space is limited.
