(Washington, DC) – On Saturday, October 2, at 10 am, Mayor Bowser and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host Open Streets DC. More than 30,000 people are expected to attend this all-day event, which takes place along three miles of Georgia Avenue NW from Barry Place to Missouri Avenue. Starting at 6:00 a.m., the corridor will be open to provide safe spaces for people to walk, bike, scoot, and play — without vehicles — with programmed activities from 10 am through 3 pm.
Open Streets supports community and local businesses along the corridor. Businesses along the route will provide extra space for outdoor dining and other activation activities to showcase their businesses in the parking lane. In addition, five sponsored activation zones will provide hourly programmed classes and demonstrations including yoga, drum circles, live music, double dutch, traffic gardens, pop-up bike lanes, dancing, and more.
