Your Chance to Be a Part of Central Avenue Open Streets!

Open Streets cannot be stopped! First Northside Greenway, then Lyndale Avenue, and now Open Streets MPLS is rolling into Northeast on July 27th. We are just three weeks out from transforming Central Avenue NE into a safe, car-free area for people to bike, walk, and play. Come be a part of the magic and sign up to volunteer today!



How can you get involved?

Volunteers help with everything from facilitating chalk art activities at intersections to helping us keep the street clean and car free. We’ll need about 90 volunteers to sign up for this event, so help us keep the momentum of Open Streets going by volunteering for a couple hours on July 27th at Central Avenue NE! You choose the location, the time, and what you’ll do -- we give you a t-shirt, a volunteer appreciation party, and a lot of high fives. Couldn't get much better than that. Check out for a complete listing of volunteer options and to get involved.
