Open Streets Knoxville
DANCE. BIKE. PLAY! ...IN THE STREET!
Open Streets Knoxville brings together community groups and local businesses, giving people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to walk, ride bikes, hula hoop, and much more - all in a setting that is fun and safe! More than a street festival, Open Streets Knoxville gives residents an opportunity to explore their neighborhood and local businesses in a safe, fun, and family-friendly way. Participants can enjoy being physically active and visiting local businesses by foot or on bike. 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.
Beginning in 2019, we will offer 1 Open Streets event per year (in the Spring), as opposed to the 2 we have held in previous years. The goal of Open Streets is to have at least a one mile route on Knoxville streets closed to traffic. Our events typically bring thousands of people into the street! Bike Walk Knoxville has in kind support from the City of Knoxville and funding from a Knoxville Community Agency Grant, as well as other community sponsors that help defray the substantial costs of Open Streets Knoxville events.
