Open Streets ICT is returning to Wichita from noon – 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 19. This free, community-building event opens four miles of Wichita's iconic Douglas Avenue from College Hill to Delano for biking, walking, running and more. Wichitans of all ages are invited to partake in this fun community event.
Open Streets ICT is designed to elevate the quality of life and health of the greater Wichita community. It promotes the idea that streets belong to everyone, connect us to one another and the places where we live, learn, work and play across neighborhoods, cultures and economic status.
This year, Open Streets ICT is taking extra precautions due to COVID-19 and will only be allowing businesses directly on the Douglas route and food trucks to register as vendors in order to limit the amount of large, clustered gatherings and encourage the community to take advantage of the open streets. Wearing facemasks and practicing social distancing at the event is encouraged. The City will continue to monitor the pandemic and will take guidance from the Sedgwick County Health Department.
This event is a collaboration of City of Wichita, Visual Fusion Graphic Design Studio, Bike Walk Wichita, Visit Wichita, Downtown Wichita, Health ICT, Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, Douglas Design District and Historic Delano.
Sponsor of the event include: Audacy, City of Wichita, Wichita Parks Foundation, KAKE-TV, Visual Fusion, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas, Entercom, Fidelity and Wichita State University.
