Event Activities

Re-imagine our public spaces! Every summer, activity hubs anchor over a mile of city streets open for people to walk, bike and play. You’ll find giant games in the parks, bicycle-powered rides, art activities, local food and drink, street installations, dance, live music and more.

Local organizations & businesses

You can sign up to host activities in a park or along the street. All participating groups must host an interactive activity that aligns with the goals of the event. There is a suggested donation of $35 for participating community groups/non-profits. Businesses are encouraged to become event sponsors or pay a $75 activity fee.


Each year, we have space for a limited number of musical and dance performances at each stage. If your group is interested, please fill out the activity sign-up below.


Interested in selling food or drink at the event? We’d love to have you! Please fill out our vendor application form.

Build community through shared physical activity and fun!

The Flanger is people-powered, vertical-axis, rotating carnival ride. Power is transmitted from one of the bikes to the center drive mechanism by a hydraulic pump-motor circuit. The Flanger was built by Trevor Heald of Marys River Metal Work.
