Open Streets

Date: August 20, 2017

Location: 75 King St. S., Waterloo, ON

Open Streets are all about the livable cities movement! These community events promote walking, dancing, playing and socializing.

You're invited to enjoy live music, art activities, community groups, businesses, eateries and more.

2017 Open Streets dates:

June 18 - noon until 5 p.m.

July 16 - noon until 5 p.m.

Aug. 20 - noon until 5 p.m.

Sept. 17 - noon until 5 p.m.

New format - still awesome

We're changing the format of Open Streets for 2017. Due to all of the construction taking place in and around uptown Waterloo we are unable to close any streets this year. Because of this, Open Streets will be taking place along the Laurel and Spurline Trails in uptown Waterloo this year.

There will be five distinct nodes of activity along the trail system during each of the four dates.

Node #1 - Green Space beside the Laurel Trail south of Erb Street

Node #2 - Under the Willow Tree at the back of the Waterloo City Centre parking lot

Node #3 - Near the flagpole at Waterloo City Centre

Node #4 - In the laneway next to the Button Factory

Node #5 - Waterloo Public Square

Along the Trail (AtT) - other programming will occur on the Spur Line and Laurel trails
