WWR - JUNE 28 2015Open Streets Hamilton is back for its ninth exciting event on James Street North! We’re looking forward to another great day and we’d love for you to join us!

WHO – Open Streets Hamilton is a community-based partnership dedicated to promoting active, healthy and inclusive lifestyles by temporarily transforming streets into a shared space for everyone to experience.

Sunday, June 28th 2015, will mark our 9th car-free Sunday in Hamilton since June 2010!

WHAT – Open Streets Hamilton is part of a network of events taking place all over the world to re-purpose streets for fun, active, and creative activities!  Click here to see more about events like this across North America!  Open Streets Hamilton features programming such as:

  • Active Transportation (Walking, Cycling, Rollerblading, Skateboarding, etc…)
  • Healthy Communities (Nutrition, Active Living, Health & Wellness, Sports & Recreation, etc…)
  • Sustainable Economy (Local Sustainable Businesses & Organizations:  Food, Services, Arts, Local Products)
  • Any combination of the above!

WHERE – We will be hosting our event again on James Street North, in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN – Sunday, June 28 2015; 11am-6pm

WHY – By connecting communities through active transportation, you open up opportunities for collaboration, support, sharing, and communication that we sometimes miss when we drive through in our car.  Taking a day to come out into the street together to celebrate the health of your community builds connections that last all year long!  Click here to read some of the things people have told us about why they come to Open Streets Hamilton every year!

HOW – By closing the road to motorized vehicles, Open Streets Hamilton “opens” the street to pedestrians, cyclists and all forms of active transportation (including wheelchairs) to walk, ride or roll down James Street North!  Along the route, we work with local organizations to provide fun, active, healthy, family-based activities to engage passers-by as they travel down the middle of the street!
