Open Streets Nashville is a program that temporarily closes the streets to cars to allow people to reconnect to their communities, get active, and play in the street. Free to the public, the event turns the streets into a park space that connects diverse portions of the city and offers communities the opportunity to experience their city streets in a whole new way.

Open Streets provide stimulus to local businesses, offer a setting for greater civic participation and integration, and build support for the provision of broader transportation choices.​ Bogota, Colombia is the birth place of Ciclovia, but since its inception many cities across the country and the world have since adopted and adapted the tradition as their own. Many peer cities like Atlanta, Louisville, Charlotte, and more have adopted Open Streets style programs into the fabric of their civic life. 

Open Streets Nashville is hosted through a partnership between the Office of the Mayor and Walk Bike Nashville and the generous support of our sponsors. 

Open Streets Artistic Programming is a fiscally sponsored project of the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville, a nonprofit organization.
