Don’t miss the family fun at the Shared Streets Evanston event that will be take place on Sunday, September 1! The event will block off Dempster St. between Elmwood St. and Chicago Ave., and is presented to the Evanston community to promote biking and walking.
This will be Evanston’s first Shared Streets event and will be held on historic Dempster Street at Chicago Avenue, in the heart of Evanston. From 12:00 to 5:00pm on Sunday, September 1st, all are invited to enjoy the street, free of motorized traffic. The route will feature two open blocks on Dempster Street, plus a car-free area on Sherman Place in front of the Dempster CTA stop. Read more about all the organizations planning to attend and activities available throughout the day.
Shared Streets symbolically reclaims the street for people, and will demonstrate two concepts: the street as a place, and the complete street. Bring your bike, skateboard, scooter, or just your own two feet, and let’s enjoy our public realm!
