Open Streets Georgia Avenue Returns!

On Oct. 2, 2021, Open Streets will return to Georgia Avenue NW — the first in a series of Open Streets events across all eight wards to be held in 2021-2022.

During the event, the District will close three miles of Georgia Avenue, between Barry Place NW and Missouri Avenue, to cars. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the corridor will be open to residents and visitors to walk, bike, run and scooter through, and visitors will have opportunities to support local businesses and participate in a range of activities such as demonstrations, fitness classes, and other educational and entertainment programming. With yoga classes, double dutch demonstrations, a drum circle, SkateDC clinic, and music from LaMarvela, Baba Ras D, The Honey Larks, and UCB, there is truly something for everyone!

“Especially over the past year and a half, we have seen residents and businesses work together to reimagine public space, and Open Streets is one more opportunity to rethink how we use our streets and sidewalks,” said Mayor Bowser. “We have a beautiful city, we have a community that is excited for the opportunity to come back together and to support local businesses, and on Oct. 2 I know residents will come out to enjoy all that Georgia Avenue has to offer.”

Open Streets is presented by Mayor Muriel Bowser and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT). District Bridges is the nonprofit partner supporting event planning and implementation.
