Open Streets will stretch from Pioneer Park at 400 West to West Temple Street, and north to south from 200 South to 300 South, including Pierpont Street. The route will be jam-packed with family-friendly games and activities, live music, beer gardens, artists, pop-up exercise classes, local vendors, food trucks and more.

“This will be a great weekend for Salt Lake City Open Streets,” stated Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski. “This is also an excellent opportunity for residents and visitors to connect in an active and unique way.”
Open Streets encourages the use of sustainable transportation methods and healthy lifestyles.
