La Placita Cleveland and Open Streets Cleveland are collaborating to hold both events in La Villa Hispana on August 18th! La Placita will be held at its usual location in the US Bank lot at 3104 West 25th and Open Street CLE will take place along West 25th between Clark Avenue and MetroHealth Drive. Open Streets will close down West 25th to motorized traffic and open the street to walking, running, biking, and all other forms of activity! Open Streets will take place from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, and the OCBC will be presenting a Tunathon at this event and doing bicycle safety checks.

Join us in celebrating our community at La Placita 2018! La Placita, a project of La Villa Hispana, is a Latino themed open-air market in the heart of Cleveland’s Latino community. La Placita includes live entertainment, traditional Latin foods, interactive art and artisan vendors! This FREE family-friendly event is a celebration of our neighborhood’s intersection of culture and commerce! Entertainment lineups will be announced closer to the event dates.

Open Streets Cleveland encourages a culture of active living and sustainable transportation while drawing on the many assets of our neighborhoods and community members to reclaim the streets where we live, work, and play.

Open Streets Cleveland can be trans-formative by:

  • Celebrating the unique elements of Cleveland neighborhoods
  • Advancing a cultural movement of sustainable transportation and health
  • Claiming roads as public space that should be used by people
  • Providing a safe, fun space to try out new things
