Eighth Annual Open Streets Emory Village-COVID19 Edition

A Socially Distant Neighborhood Event Supporting Emory Village

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

Saturday, October 24, 2020

Sunday, October 25th

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