See You Next Year!

For the health and safety of our volunteers, participants and staff, Open Streets Windsor has been cancelled this year. We want to thank our over three hundred volunteers and over two hundred organizations that bring this fantastic event to life, and we look forward to reconnecting next year to explore and celebrate our amazing neighbourhoods:

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.

Are motorized vehicles permitted?

  • Permitted: Mobility aids, emergency vehicles and authorized staff/service vehicles are permitted.
  • Prohibited: Recreational motorized vehicles (including e-bikes) are prohibited along the Open Streets route.
