This Sunday, September 20th is the day we planned to hold Open Streets Nicollet. Unfortunately, the event will not happen this year due to risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. 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 Nicollet this year, we can still support those local businesses and community organizations that help make Open Streets Nicollet so fun and unique.
Check out the list below to learn just a few ways you can support Nicollet Ave on Open Streets day. Have another suggestion? Let us know on social media or in the comments!
