Plan Now for Open Streets Emory Village-COVID19 Edition

A Socially Distant Neighborhood Event Supporting Emory Village

The 8th Annual Open Streets Emory Village will carry on in 2020 with a socially responsible edition in line with the challenges of the times. Events will be spaced out over a four-day period, some virtual, so friends and neighbors can enjoy the fun without the crowds. There will still be good food, music, and activities, but we encourage individuals and families to explore the village environs safely and at your own speed.

Thursday, October 22nd

Friday, October 23rd

Saturday, October 24th

Sunday, October 25th

*Anyone who signs up with a name and email for any other official Open Streets event may have a duck entered for them in the Peavine Creek Duck race.

Next, you will head south on the stub end of Emory Road to N. Decatur Road, completing the trip around the block by going through the Lullwater roundabout.
