First Open Streets of Summer Happens Saturday, July 2, 2022

The Town of Kingsville is excited to launch Open Streets in Downtown Kingsville on Saturday, July 2, from 4:00 pm – 10:30 pm.

“Open Streets is about supporting Kingsville businesses and organizations,” stated Kingsville’s Manager of Recreation Programs and Special Events, Karen Loney. “We’re looking forward to seeing residents and visitors come and enjoy family activities, live music, and new surprises for 2022.”

Participants can visit outdoor patios, retailers, and vendors and take part in fun activities, including life-sized games. The Arts Society of Kingsville (ASK) hosts drop-in family arts and crafts on the Carnegie green from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm, and the Kingsville Music Society presents live music from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm.

“This year, we’re increasing community-building activities and community-led active living initiatives,” said Loney. “We want to encourage more active transportation and physical activity alongside the fun, social elements of our traditional Open Streets event.”

Open Streets runs Saturdays from July 2, 2022, to September 3, 2022.

The Town will close Main Street (from Spruce to Queen) and Division Street (from King to Pearl) to safely open the streets to pedestrians. See our Open Streets map for road closure locations, times, and detours.
