Open Streets Macon returns Sunday, May 21, 2017 from 2 pm to 6 pm. Maconites will be treated to 1.5 miles of car-free streets from the Washington Memorial Library to A. L. Miller Village. People traffic will replace car traffic, as sections of College St. and Montpelier Ave. will be closed to cars and open to YOU! Activate the streets and connect with your fellow humans. With no cars, it's time to explore new neighborhoods, learn about ways we can restructure streets, and play like a kid.

Organized by Bike Walk Macon, this is the city's largest FREE recreation program, unlike any other in Macon-Bibb County. Open Streets Macon is inspired by a world-class program proven to positively impact healthy behavior by repurposing existing public streets and providing access to free recreation space. Grab your friends and family and get ready to activate the streets with human-powered amusement!

Question: What exactly do we do? 
Answer: We close the streets to cars and open them to people!

Question: What should you do?
Answer: Bring your bicycle or your feet, and get ready to explore your community streets in a safer, healthier, more livable way.
