Experience downtown La Crosse like never before

Join us on Sunday, September 2nd for Open Streets La Crosse, Presented by the Wisconsin Bike Fed and Explore La Crosse, with support from Downtown Mainstreet, Inc., the City of La Crosse, and the  La Crosse City Vision Foundation.

Imagine a day without car traffic. Open Streets events create car-free spaces where people and families bike, walk, dance, play, and socialize. At the same time, local neighborhood businesses and vendors engage the community in fresh, new ways. You’ll experience an exciting stretch of downtown La Crosse like never before. Yoga, dance, art, and other activities will be available for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy on streets temporarily closed-off to cars. Open Streets is a worldwide movement modeled after Ciclovia, which began in Bogota, Columbia. The idea focuses on minimizing the use of cars and temporarily promoting biking, walking and active living in the communal spaces that are otherwise dominated or made unsafe or unhealthy by moving and parked cars.
