Open Streets Minneapolis (MN): Meet our Volunteers! Join the Team!

September 10, 2016 Minneapolis

Meet Pin-Up Team Leader, Alison and 2017 Pin-Up, Shannon at this great event!

Open Streets Minneapolis brings together community groups and local businesses to temporarily close major thoroughfares to car traffic, and open them up for people walking, biking, skating, and playing. This community event is in its sixth year, and is co-sponsored by the City of Minneapolis.

More than a street festival, Open Streets Minneapolis gives residents an opportunity to explore their neighborhood and local businesses in a safe, fun, and family-friendly way. It encourages the use of active transportation and healthy living, and has a goal of giving residents an opportunity to rethink our streets as public space.
