Open Streets promote healthy, active living through a series of free events held across the region opening the city's largest public space --its streets --to the non-motorized public in order to walk, bike, skate, and discover active transportation.
Open Streets events foster civic pride, stimulate economic development, and represent community, investments in Northwest Arkansas's vitality, livability, and diversity. These are free programs that offer communities the opportunity to experience their city streets in a whole new way.
