What is Open Streets about?​

Open Streets are unique events that have been held in over 100 cities in North America and involve the temporary closure of roadways to vehicular traffic, allowing people to use them for a host of healthy and fun physical activities like walking, cycling, yoga, dancing and fitness.

The goals of Open Streets Windsor are to:

  • Encourage active transportation and physical activity;
  • Encourage community building activities;
  • Promote community-led active living initiatives;
  • Showcase recently improved streetscapes;
  • Provide an opportunity for local businesses and organizations to participate along the route.

New this year - An Ontario 150 Celebration!

That's right! We have an entire hub at Open Streets dedicated to Ontario's 150th Anniversary and the magnificent history and diversity in our community. Visit the Ontario 150 Hub on University Avenue between Bruce and Janette. Learn about using 3D printing to create a model of our provincial flower - the Trillium. Take a break from the route to sit and enjoy a musical or dance performance by one of our many multicultural groups. View the Museum Windsor and First Nations exhibits or join in with everyone painting a mural. Enjoy a cupcake or cookie as you celebrate Ontario's 150 with your friends, family and neighbours.
