Lancaster Rec's 8th Annual Open Streets Lancaster
Held on Waterst. From Walnutst. - Conestogast.

Countdown to Sunday, May 21st 2023

Teaming with our Community to Get Active, Live Healthy and Celebrate Lancaster

The Event

Presented by Lancaster Rec and held in partnership with Lancaster City and the Lancaster Bikes program, Open Streets is a free family-friendly event that temporarily transforms Water Street into a pedestrian mall – complete with music, food, shopping, activities promoting physical well-being, civic pride, and personal and community connections.

Open Streets Lancaster creates 8 blocks of safe, car-free streets so that community members can walk, bike, blade, and skate to engage in dozens of recreational activities. Our event helps our community reimagine public space to prioritize people over cars, provide easy access to health-oriented programming, and promote local economic development. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about local non-profit services and businesses, shop locally, and get to know their neighbors.

It’s a FREE event! Bring your family, bring your friends, bring your dogs!
