Open Streets Chicago temporarily closes streets to vehicle traffic so that people may use them for walking, jogging, bicycling, dancing, skateboarding and more.
In the long term, Open Streets is expected to evolve into a recurring city program that will expand beyond downtown and connect more communities, attract more residents, and bring more recreational opportunities to an even larger population.
Spanning from Ashland to Kedzie Avenues, people will have the opportunity to interact and connect with the community in a big way. Choose your own adventure across a myriad of fun activities and performances in a safe public space and car-free setting. We’ll see you and yours there!
