Open Streets Hamilton days lets us stretch our legs and minds and experience downtown in a whole new way. These events demonstrate that pedestrians, not cars, support community and local business. - Green Venture
Open Streets is a fabulous opportunity for Hamiltonians to enjoy our streets in a way our streets are meant to be enjoyed – carfree and full of life! - Environment Hamilton
Kirkendall Neighbourhood Association

Beasley Neighbourhood Association
Beasley is the award-winning neighbourhood in the heart of the city and consists of the area bounded by Main St, James St. N, Wellington St and the CN rail tracks. The Beasley Neighbourhood Association is an organization of engaged residents who work together to empower and celebrate the community. The Association and its members act as role models to inspire community spirit.
The Beasley Neighbourhood Association connects residents to city services and their elected officials so that their needs are met. Regular meetings are held twice a month to organize events, plan workshops, and keep residents informed about what is going on in their neighbourhood. The goal is to promote the community’s health and well-being by unifying its diverse members and providing a platform where shared experiences and concerns can be voiced.
We are dedicated to promoting solidarity within different cultural and social groups and the community at large. Together, we will work to establish a pedestrian friendly environment that prioritizes HEALTH, SAFETY AND SUSTAINABILITY. Open Streets Hamilton is a perfect example of the community working together to achieve these goals.
YWCA Hamilton is proud to partner with Open Streets Hamilton. We both encourage and promote healthy, active living and bringing diverse communities together. As such, we are certain Open Streets will be the perfect venue for YWCA’s Walk A Mile In Her Shoes event – bringing together concerned men, women and families who walk together helping women take steps away from violence and poverty. YWCA Hamilton is a women-led, service organization supporting individuals through health and wellness programs for women, families, seniors and people with special needs.
This Ain’t Hollywood
Open Streets conceptually is the perfect diagram that connects family with art, music, culture, foods and history. Their emphasis on alternate transportation could not be better in timing, considering the costs to our environment and our wallets - Lou Molinaro Co/Owner of This Ain’t Hollywood
