Open Streets

7th Street NW

June 4th, 2022 

Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm  

Location: On 7th Street NW, between Florida Avenue NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW  

We’re thrilled to bring the second Signature Open Streets event of the year to the heart of DC!  

This 1 ½ mile route will connect Shaw, Mount Vernon Square, Chinatown, and Penn Quarter as people ride, bike, walk, socialize, and participate in programming planned exclusively for 7th Street!  

Open Streets is designed for people of all ages and backgrounds. Want to ride uninterrupted across multiple different neighborhoods? Care to join a dancing or fitness class with your friends? Do you prefer to sit back and enjoy the line-up of diverse musical performances? How about bringing the kids out to enjoy family-friendly activities in one of downtown’s most popular corridors without the worry of traffic?  

All of these are possible at the 7th Street Open Streets event! Kick-off the summer with a safe and exciting way to enjoy our streets!  

No cars, just people.
