Open Streets Boston is a collection of free, family-friendly events. During these events, the City will close major thoroughfares to motor traffic, opening them for pedestrian use including: walking, rolling, biking, and connecting with neighbors and local businesses.

Open Streets Boston events help people experience streets as public spaces where communities thrive. City streets transform into vibrant, pedestrian friendly boulevards where people can dream, play, and explore

The expanded program has grown for the 3rd year from the popular Open Newbury Street initiative that has stretched to 16 Sundays from July - October.

With live art, music, food trucks, and games for kids, there's something for everyone at this family-friendly event.
