Supplies are gathered; volunteers are trained – now we need YOU! It’s SHAPE YOUR CITY 2017.
This Sunday afternoon September 17th from 1-5 PM, select downtown streets go car-free and community-filled! Bring the bikes & Big Wheels! Ride down a car-free Patton Avenue; cook in a solar oven; join in a dance performance or try a yoga class. Activities presented by our Street Partners are free and available to all.
Travel all five route hubs (shown in color) to enjoy unique programming and messaging for all ages, incomes & body types. Travel all five? Redeem your High Five Challenge card for a prize at the HQ tent near Vance Monument.
Post your photos online and tag us #openstreetsAVL! Post a selfie and tag us to enter a drawing for a one-hour massage from Asheville Massage & Natural Therapeutics, a $75 value!
Active streets build a better Asheville. Why? Active streets inspire greater health & wellness, and build community, too. The fun on Sunday is simply a glimpse of Asheville’s future the way we see it – strong, resilient, and healthy. Complete street design accommodates all users: bicyclists, pedestrians and users of transit and autos. Greenways make key connections in a liveable, loveable city like ours. Our movement is designed to deliver this vision of Asheville, for all.
Great fun for family and free for all, Open Streets welcomes you this Sunday afternoon 1-5 PM in downtown Asheville!
