The 2017 Carrboro Open Streets Event will be held on Sunday, April 9th from 12:00pm-4:00pm.
The Carrboro Bicycle Coalition started the Carrboro Open Streets Event in 2013. The main purpose of Carrboro Open Streets was to recreate the street and encourage community building through a variety of activities.
The event is held annually in April on Weaver Street. The community is invited to dance, do yoga, ride their bikes, climb a rock wall, make smoothies on a bike blender, and participate in many other activities in a public space that not many ever thought of as a place to partake in recreation.
Given the success of this inaugural event in 2013, the Carrboro Board of Alderman approved the continuation of future Open Streets Events in Carrboro and it is now an annual event with guidance from a volunteer steering committee and the support of the Recreation & Park Department.
