This Saturday, September 12th is the day we planned to hold Open Streets West Broadway. 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 West Broadway this year, we can still support those local businesses and community organizations that help make Open Streets West Broadway so fun and unique.
