Bring your friends and family, and share in the experience of enjoying our city streets as public space!
Open Streets Macon returns Sunday, October 20th from 2 pm to 6 pm with a new route! The streets of Macon will leap to life as nearly 1.5 miles of Ash Street to Montpelier Ave. become a paved park. The stretches of street will be closed to motorized traffic (except for intersections where cars will be free to cross). There is no registration, and Open Streets Macon is FREE and open to the public.
Organized by Bike Walk Macon, Open Streets Macon is a car-free celebration of public space; bringing people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds together to walk, skate, bike, play, and re-imagine how we use our public streets.
See you in the streets!
WHAT IS OPEN STREETS?
Open Streets programs, also known as Ciclovias, is a movement to activate people, strengthen businesses, and inspire public spaces by temporarily closing streets to cars. This is a free, regularly occurring program that offers Macon the opportunity to experience city streets in a whole new way, taking an active role in this global movement.
Sunday, October 20th from 2 pm to 6 pm
