Open Streets BTV - Everything You Need to Know

One of the Biggest Events of the Year...Vermont's Ciclovia!

Sunday, September 13, 2015

10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

 

 

Open Streets BTV is a celebration of one of the city’s largest public spaces -- our streets! More than two miles of streets in Burlington's Old North End neighborhood will be closed to cars and opened to people.

 

 

Events are FREE and will include:

Outdoor yoga, chair massages, Zumba, face painting, contra dancing with the Mad Robins featuring Young Tradition Vermont, a bounce house, local musicians, food vendors, helmet decorating, bike polo and skateboarding demos, mural painting, and lots of games. People can bring bikes, scooters, skateboards, roller skates, or just their family or a few friends.

 

Streets along the route will be open to residents only. Police or volunteers will be stationed at all intersections to get you where you need to go.

We need volunteers!

 

 

Here are a few reasons to volunteer for Open Streets BTV:

 

·A really cool volunteer t-shirt! We are topping last year's orange shirts with something spectacular for you to have as an exclusive Open Streets BTV volunteer keepsake.

·City Market working member hours. All volunteers are eligible to count their Open Streets BTV shift and training time towards City Market working member volunteer hours.

·Free bus, bike parking and car share credits. Signing up to volunteer enters you to win CCTA, CarShare Vermont and BikeLink electronic access bike parking vouchers. 

·The pride of helping to build bike-walk culture in Burlington. Events like this are key to illustrating to community leaders the sheer number of people who want to walk and bike, and that creating safe streets should be a priority.
