It’s almost time to put on your walking shoes and see what’s great about Nicollet Avenue from a different perspective! The Kingfield Neighborhood Association (KFNA), Lyndale Neighborhood Association (LNA), & Whittier Alliance are excited to partner to bring their neighborhoods together on Sunday September 18 to enjoy Nicollet Open Streets for the 3rd year! Enjoy our main street by ped or pedal from 11 – 5 PM between kmart and 46th Street.
Open Streets are one-day events organized in collaboration with the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition that are focused around healthy living, sustainable transportation, local businesses, and community connections. For this one afternoon, Nicollet Avenue will be closed to all motorized traffic (cars and buses) and the street will be open for biking, walking, dancing, yoga, jump roping, art making, frolicking, and more!
This year there will also be an art fair along the 3400 block of Nicollet, with 10-by-10-foot spaces rented to artists and homebased businesses for $30 to support our entrepreneurial residents. We hope to reflect our community’s love of art while providing local artists an opportunity to showcase their work. Applications are available at kingfield.org, and must be submitted with payment to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15.
As the event draws near keep an eye on our Facebook Event page for musical line-ups, special deals, updates on sponsors and unique happenings, and eventually a full map of activities. Questions including those related to vending, tabling, or volunteering can be directed to Aryca at the Lyndale Association at Aryca@lyndale.org. If you are ready to sign-up online, just use this link!
