In 2011, Our Streets Minneapolis hosted its first event on two miles of Lyndale Avenue. Since then, over 575,000 people have attended Open Streets events. After a pause in 2020 and a scaled down event in 2021, Open Streets was back in full swing this year to showcase the creativity, diversity, and culture of Minneapolis through local businesses, community groups, artists, and more. Our Streets Minneapolis hopes to continue focusing in on specific needs of each individual neighborhood and bringing community together. Their website states, “We always strive to do better for the communities we serve: listening, learning, and taking action to make Open Streets Minneapolis events places where everyone feels supported, celebrated, and welcomed.” To find more about Open Streets Minneapolis, visit https://www.openstreetsmpls.org/.
