Open Streets presented by Trinity Metro is a four-hour Sunday event that closes Magnolia Avenue to vehicular traffic and opens it up to cyclists, food trucks, dog-walkers, skateboarders, yoga classes, face-painters and much more. The event is an expression of the Near Southside's community spirit in every way. Local businesses and other organizations set up a wide variety of free activities along the route, including temporary public art projects, pet adoptions, bike safety courses, children's art booths, fitness classes, and more. Neighborhood residents and volunteers play a critical role in making this day a success, setting up and breaking down barricades on event day, and spreading the word about the event and street closures in advance.

Open Streets is presented by Near Southside, Inc. and over the last 9 years has grown to be one of the Near Southside's most beloved community events with attendance in the thousands and more than 120 community partners providing FREE activities for our patrons of all ages.

Thanks to these Open Streets sponsors for making this event FREE to attend.
