5 Things to Look Forward to at Open Streets Minneapolis: Minnehaha

For the past 11 years, Our Streets Minneapolis & the City of Minneapolis have been opening up streets across Minneapolis for people to explore. It’s a space for communities to come together and enjoy streets without cars. 

This Sunday, we’re opening Minnehaha Ave for our final event of the 2021 season. Each year is an exciting, unique event full of vendors, entertainment, and more. Here are some things you can look forward to at Open Streets Minneapolis on Minnehaha:

Programming

There will be over 150 vendors, artists, and entertainers across the route at Open Streets Minneapolis on Minnehaha. Get your body moving with the Tango Society of Minnesota, or enjoy live music from the Cavern Lads - there’s something for everyone! Check out the event map here.

Food with a Cause

There are plenty of vendors and local restaurants to enjoy at Minnehaha, including some that support communities with every purchase. Wildflyer Coffee on 33rd St is a nonprofit coffee company that creates employment for youth experiencing homelessness. There is also Venture North Bike and Coffee, a nonprofit coffee and bike shop serving the Harrison neighborhood. Stop by to try their coffee and learn more about each of these organizations.

Artisan Market
E 42nd St to E 44th St

What’s better than buying local? The Artisan Market will feature local makers selling their home-made creations. This time, we have nearly 50 local artists and makers! From self care items to one-of-a-kind paintings, everything in this market is hand-made just for you.

Bike Rodeo
North of E 38th St

The Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota will be offering a bike rodeo and adult learn-to-ride opportunities to encourage biking as an easy, safe, and fun way to move around Minneapolis and beyond! It’s a great way to get your body moving and practice biking safety skills. The course and information table will be in front of their home base on Minnehaha Ave!
