Thanks for joining us for the first ever  Open Streets Knoxville  event hosted by Bike Walk Knoxville and with support from the City of Knoxville and Knoxville Regional TPO. Open Streets Knoxville aims to promote physical activity and community interaction during this free event. This international initiative promotes healthy living, local businesses and sustainable transportation in cities. The event emphasizes interactive and fun activities that promote physical activity, health, care for the natural environment, community and safety.

 From 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 25 , Central Street was closed to motorized vehicles from Willow Street to Oklahoma Avenue. The event featured kids’ activities, free exercise classes and opportunities for the public to learn and engage in healthful activities. Attendees can try their hand at Zumba or yoga, or peacefully stroll the street while enjoying live music and street performers. The family-friendly event was stroller- and bicycle-friendly – just no cars!

 SBRET was located  at The Central Collective at 923 N. Central Street. Many people took this opportunity to take a tour of their space, play in the bubble garden, get your photo taken at the photobooth by Shawn Poynter Photography, eat pies by Dale's Fried Pies, and meet dogs from Belly Rubs Beagle Rescue and Small Breeds of East Tennessee Rescue.

The Central Collective is a mixed-use creative space on Central Street in North Knoxville, and home to Dale’s Fried Pies, Shawn Poynter Photography and the Center for Rural Strategies. The Central Collective also hosts workshops, meals, small events and performances, and is available for rental.
