Open Streets Hutchinson

Eat. Move. Connect. Explore Hutchinson.

Open Streets Hutchinson is an event that encourages recreation, community activities and fun in Hutchinson, MN.

The Open Streets Hutchinson event will close a stretch of 3rd Avenue NW along the Luce Line State Trail to automobile traffic, and opens the street up for people to enjoy being active together as a community. A special ‘Grand Opening’ of the newly paved section of the Luce Line State Trail will kick off this one day event bringing together families, neighbors and friends. Free and open to the public.

Experience all that Hutchinson has to offer. Open Streets Hutchinson is the perfect time to connect with the community and discover something new.

This is not a race. Participants can explore the street that is open only to foot, bicycle and skate traffic. In addition to bicycling, walking and skating, there are programmed recreational activities for all ages along the street. Some of these activities might include yoga, zumba, games and dance lessons.
