Open Streets Windsor returns this September with a change to the route.

This year, the eight-kilometre route will start along Sandwich Street, and then take Riverside Drive West instead of University Avenue. It will travel along Riverside until hits the downtown core and then stretch along University Avenue West, then onto Wyandotte Street East and end on Drouillard Road.

The newly added River Rest hub stretches along Riverside Drive West and offers an opportunity to relax, take in the view and take the perfect selfie.

Once again, event organizers are looking for volunteers, as well as individuals, organizations and businesses to contribute ideas and activities at hubs along the massive event route. Volunteer duties include greeting, safety monitoring and supervision of roadway barricades.

In addition to providing a space for people to walk, cycle, rollerblade, etc. along the route, hubs are designated for community partners, including individuals, businesses and organizations to carry out activities that promote health, physical activity, arts and culture—and that’s where you come in. Activities must be free and encourage the greatest possible participation from people of all ages and abilities.

If you would like to become a volunteer or a supporting activity partner, or if you’d just like to learn more about the event, visit
