Open Streets are global community street festivals inspired by the Central and South Americas ciclovias and Seattle’s Car Free Sundays.
There are over 100 initiatives in North America alone, including Hamilton, Toronto, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Chicago, New York City and San Francisco.
Open Streets are all about the livable cities movement! These community events temporarily close streets to automobile traffic for walking, dancing, playing and socializing.
You’re invited to the Uptown Waterloo core to enjoy live music, art and activities,  community groups, businesses and eateries. Local vendors, artists, not-for-profit organizations, and other performers gain the opportunity to share their product and services.

2016 dates: June 12, July 24, Aug 21, Sept 18.
