Sunday, April 16 marks the latest edition of Open Streets ICT in Wichita. The latest version expands to WSU and Shocker Neighborhood, where the free neighborhood community-building event takes place along 17th street (just south of Wichita State University) from Oliver all the way west to Volutsia.
The event runs from Noon to 4 p.m. and includes an afternoon of physical activity, food trucks, music, and fun.
Two miles of 17th street will be closed to traffic from Oliver to Grove and open for biking, walking, running, food, and more… even crawling if you have some little ones.
There are four major hub areas: Chester Lewis Elementary, Kirby’s Beer Store, Fairmount Park, and one at the end of the street at the Red Bud Trail Head.
What else can you expect? Here’s a quick rundown:
- Adults that love live music can visit Kirby’s & Ulrich Museum hub.
- You can also find family fun crafts at the Ulrich Museum of Art and a food truck with delicious eats.
- At the farthest west hub: Chester Lewis – Youth Activity Hub, you’ll find 22 youth serving vendors, a Recreation Station van with games, crafts, STEM activities, and resources. Plus a food truck and our DJ who will start performing at 1:30pm.
- Food Trucks? They’ve got food trucks. You can find the full list at ICTFoodTrucks.com or to save you time, here’s the list:
I’ve been to many Open Streets over the years and have always had a great time. This one should be no different.
Don’t miss out!
