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. 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. Our goal is to host two events each year, with different neighborhoods hosting each event. The event is hosted by Bike Walk Knoxville, with significant support from the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization and the City of Knoxville.
Join us on Sunday, May 21st from 2-6pm as we bring Open Streets to East Knoxville! Magnolia Ave. from Randolph St. to North Chestnut St. (with a small “L” loop onto East Depot Ave. and back) will be filled with people of all ages and abilities. Participants will have the opportunity to walk, ride bikes, dance, and much more in the streets – all in a setting that is fun and safe!
We will be heading to South Knoxville on Sunday, October 29th.
