See you in the streets.
Open Streets Detroit is a free, safe and inclusive event that brings Detroiters together in the streets by providing opportunities for fitness, recreation and community building along 3.5 miles of roadway. At Open Streets Detroit, you can expect to see people walking, running, biking, rollerblading, skateboarding, and playing in the streets. In addition to turning the streets over to people, Open Streets Detroit includes complimentary programming at locations along the route featuring a wide variety of organizations.
“I feel it was great for the Southwest Detroit community.” - Donut Villa
“It was definitely a great way to bring current and regular customers down to Corktown and also a great way to be introduced to new (and hopefully returning) customers. It was a fun and memorable day for all.” - Detroit Institute of Bagels
“I liked seeing people outside taking walks, and it was also good for businesses. My mom and I returned to a store after the event, and I don’t think she would have known about it otherwise.” - Open Streets Detroit volunteer
