Opens Streets Minneapolis is a City of Minneapolis initiative organized by Our Streets Minneapolis that gives local businesses, artists and community groups a chance to transform the streets into a place where people can gather and celebrate the diversity and creativity of the city while walking, biking and rolling.
Open Streets Lyndale takes place 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, June 5 — the first Open Streets Minneapolis event of the 2022 season.
