Experience your neighborhood in a new way — participate in Open Streets Mpls!

There will be seven Open Streets events in Minneapolis this year. You can get to the events free on a Metro Transit bus or METRO lines with a downloadable pass, which will be available here (check the Events link, then a specific location for your transit pass).

At each event, a major street (or streets) will close to traffic and you can stroll along on foot or ride a bike. Along the way, take in sidewalk sales, theatrical performances, roving entertainers, neighborhood organizations, live music and more! Learn more at
