Come and experience the fun of strolling or biking the streets of Media without cars—it’s healthy fun for the whole family!
On Saturday, September 29, 2018, from 9am to 1:30pm, we’ll close down Jackson St. from 252 to 3rd St., 3rd St. from Jackson to West St., down West to State St., and down State to Glen Providence Park. Then you and your friends and family can come out and play in the streets! Anything non-motorized is allowed—bicycles, strollers, wheelchairs, skateboards, roller skates, or just your own two feet! Of course, there will be vendor and information tables, fun activities, and music. Check out this video to see what it might look like.
The Media Environmental Advisory Council (EAC), Transition Town Media, Media Arts Council, the Bicycle Coalition of Philadelphia, Media Providence Friends School, Friends of Glen Providence Park, and other great partners have teamed up to bring this new experience to the residents of Media and our neighboring towns. We thank our generous sponsors who supported this event, especially our Premier Sponsor, Main Line Health. Other generous contributors were Premier Orthopaedics, Pennoni Associates, Pando Mortgage/ReMax Select, Wawa, and Iron Workers Bank. It’s not too late to be a sponsor—check out this form for the sponsor levels and benefits.
There will be fun activities and vendor tables along the route, at Borough Hall (3rd & Jackson St), and at Glen Providence Park. Join in the yoga and salsa dancing classes! Check out the plein-air art by Media Arts Council artists! There will also be music from some local bands, and Media Theatre will put on a short performance at the Park at 2pm to top it all off! Stay tuned to the Media Open Streets Facebook page for updates.
We have ambitious plans for this event, and we’re still looking for some volunteers to help us pull it off! Available and interested?

PS: volunteers get free event logo t-shirts, sure to be a classic Media collectors item.
