The free and family-friendly activities hosted by our activity providers help make Open Streets Knoxville an enriching and fun experience for participants. Activity providers are expected to provide programming, with emphasis on interactive, fun activities that promote physical activity, health, the outdoors, community, and safety. We encourage you to be creative on choosing your activity. Make it something that will make someone remember your business, organization, etc.! (Some examples from past events include yoga in the street, bicycle demos, bubbles, a rock climbing wall). We have found that people will not stop at your booth if you do not offer a fun, interactive activity!
The following types of participation are invited (Be creative! Remember - you want to offer an activity that will make someone remember you and your business!!):*Share your expertise with the community by offering an interactive or creative space where attendees can actively participate.
*Lead group fitness activity, lessons, or offer demonstrations. The goal is to get people active and having fun doing it!
*Perform! Open Streets Knoxville is a great venue where you will reach thousands of people. You’re welcome to put out a hat or guitar case to collect donations.
*Offer a fun, active activity such as bike riding, relay races, mini soccer games, etc. to promote physical activity._______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Fees:- Activity Provider Registration Fees: $100^** (Non-profits receive a 50% discount on the fee^)
