Record-breaking year for OpenStreetsPGH

Blue skies and sunshine at the last Open Streets of the season

Over 30,000 people were estimated in attendance at OpenStreetsPGH – our free (and car-free) event connecting Downtown, the Strip District and Lawrenceville. The 3.5 mile route stretched from Market Square along Penn Avenue from Downtown to the Strip District, and Butler Street from Doughboy Square to 47th Street in Lawrenceville. Participants enjoyed beautiful weather while biking, walking, skating, and socializing their way along the route. There were many things to do at the July even including a Healthy Ride bike helmet giveaway, fencing demos, sidewalk sales, Vine Rewind music festival, boxing classes, yoga and fitness classes.

Nearly 90,000 people of all ages participated in OpenStreetsPGH in 2017, which is a 59% increase over last year, and a 97% increase in participation in 2015 (our first year putting on the event). This summer, participants enjoyed numerous fitness classes, kids activities, shopping, brunch, community arts, and special promotions presented by over 100 local businesses and organizations.
