The Media Environmental Advisory Council (EAC), Transition Town Media, Media Providence Friends School, Friends of Glen Providence Park, Media Arts Council, the Bicycle Coalition of Philadelphia, and other great partners have teamed up to bring residents of Media and our neighboring towns a fun, family-friendly event—Media Open Streets—now in its second year!
This year promises to be even more fun than last year! We’ll have two food trucks, three bands: Lost Northern Tribe, Trinidad North (steel drums), and Dope Pinheads, plus Fish Castle for the little ones, LOTS of fun activities, AND a chance to engage in some street art—Media Arts Council will sketch an outline on the street at 3rd & West and YOU get to color it in!
On Saturday, September 28, 2019, from 10AM–3PM, we’ll close down Jackson St. from 5th St to 3rd St, 3rd from Jackson to West, down West to State St, and State to Glen Providence Park. You and your friends, neighbors, and family can come out and play in the streets! Anything non-motorized is allowed—bicycles, strollers, wheelchairs, skateboards, roller skates, or your own two feet. There will be food, vendor & information tables, fun activities, and music along the way, around Borough Hall (3rd & Jackson Sts), and at Glen Providence Park. We’ll supply a map of what’s happening where.
Get out in the streets Saturday, Sept 28th, 10AM–3PM—Jackson St from 5th to 3rd; 3rd from Jackson St to West St; West St from 3rd to the Glen Providence Park entrance on State. Check out our website for the map and other information. Want to help make the event a safe, friendly space? Sign up for an hour-and-1/2 shift and get a free t-shirt!
Media Open Streets 2019 will be part of Delco Arts Week, Sept 21–28. Check out all the other great events going on that week! And rumor has it that a special Dining under the Stars will be taking place that evening—you’ll have just enough time to run home, change your clothes, and run back for dinner—topping off a beautiful day in Media!
Our thanks to the generous sponsors who have made Media Open Streets 2019 possible!
Come and experience the fun of strolling or biking the streets of Media without cars—it’s healthy fun for the whole family! Check out these pictures from last year to see for yourself! And check out our Facebook page for the latest updates!
