ciCLEvia West

August 20th, 2017 || 1-5pm

ciCLEvia West was the third of four events for the Summer 2017 Open Street Series! This event brought ciCLEvia to a new location, connecting two near west side neighborhoods. The route spanned a mile of Detroit Avenue and connected the Ohio City and Detroit Shoreway neighborhoods. Its endpoints were at Hingetown (West 29th Street) and Gordon Square (West 67th Street).

ciCLEvia West was possible with the help of our partners and sponsors: The YMCA, Councilman Matt Zone of Ward 15, Neighborhood Family Practice, Jukebox, Platform Beer Co., Near West Intergenerational School, Ohio City Incorporated, and Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, and Gordon Square Presents!

ciCLEvia West had three main hubs along the street, with activities and music along the entire route. Attendees could bike, walk, jog, and play from the Hingetown Hub, Envisioning Cleveland Hub, and Gordon Square Presents! Hub throughout the day without worrying about cars in the street.

The vibrant event drew crowds of around 2,000 people over the course of the day. Participants had the opportunity to eat, play, walk, and roll with bands and DJ’s along the route. They could stop in for a community mural painting, adopt a new friend with City Dogs, ride the Midway, tour Tailspinners, play with Recess Cleveland, and more! There were 20 activity programmers, multiple food and drink vendors, and around 15 tablers along the route, with tons of open space to ride, walk, and play in between!
