Word on the Streets

Support the Open Streets Lyndale Corridor

In response to the emerging COVID-19 pandemic earlier this spring, we decided to reschedule Open Streets Lyndale from the original date in June to October. At the time, our hope was we may be able to hold Open Streets Lyndale later in the fall. As we all know, that unfortunately was not the case. You can learn more about how we came to this decision here

Open Streets Minneapolis events do more than close streets to cars. Each event connects people to local businesses, community resources, and each other. While we are unable to come together to celebrate Open Streets Lyndale this year, we can still support those local businesses and community organizations that help make Open Streets Lyndale so fun and unique.

Check out the list below to learn just a few ways you can support Lyndale Ave S any day of the year. Have another suggestion? Let us know on social media or in the comments!
