Join us this fall for Open Streets ICT, a FREE neighborhood community-building event along Douglas Avenue in Wichita for a full day of biking, fun physical activities, music, dancing, yoga, and much more!
4.1 miles of Douglas Avenue will be closed to traffic from College Hill at Bluff St. to Glenn St. in the historic Delano District, and open the street for biking, walking, running, live music and dancing, entertainment, food, art, yoga, and more.

COVID-19: It is our hope to have the event this year in a safe manner and would like our participants to save the date. Our top priority will be the health of our community and we know we’ll be able to make a more informed decision as we draw closer to September. We are continually monitoring the number of cases, vaccine rates, and current health orders before proceeding with this event in its full extent. We are hoping for the best, but know a lot can change between now and event time.
Free - many vendors will offer food and other items for sale
