Save the Date: Open Streets Windsor returns on September 22, 2024!

There is so much in store for Open Streets 2024, and we can't wait to share it with you!

Save the Date for this year's Open Streets, taking place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 22, 2024. This year's event will feature many new and exciting things to explore, including a brand-new route! More details coming soon.

What is Open Streets about?

Open Streets events 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.

As thousands have witnessed over the years, Open Streets Windsor is about more than providing a space for people to walk, cycle, roller blade, etc. — It is about engaging the community, and providing a chance to explore the streets and neighbourhoods of our city in a brand new way!

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.

Open Streets Windsor "The Big 8" Kilometre Edition (and the Rosalie Trombley Community Celebration) took place on Sunday, September 17, 2023, and the community came out once again to enjoy the festivities on a truly beautiful day. Thank you to all of our volunteers, community partners and everyone who attended!
