What is Open Streets?

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.

El Programa Calles abiertas promueve un estilo de vida activo y saludable, y ofrece una serie de eventos gratis por toda la región mediante la apertura de los espacios más grandes de las ciudades –las calles– al público sin motor, para que puedan caminar, correr, patinar y descubrir el mundo del transporte activo. ¡Venga a jugar con nosotros en la calle!

Este es un divertido evento gratis para toda la familia. ¡Disfrute de música en vivo, baile, comida, bicicletadas, arte con tiza, juegos de patio, una carrera de obstáculos inflables y más! Disfrute junto a la comunidad de actividades al aire libre, jugando en las calles.
