Franklin to the Fort

August 8, 2021

12:00pm - 3:00pm



The Franklin to the Fort neighborhood was proud to be host Sunday Streets Missoula 2021. The 1.05-mile long route showcased the neighborhood's new traffic calming circles and two alley parklets. It also included temporary activation stations, food vendors, and local businesses and organizations that hosted activities along the route.


Sunday Streets events encourage all ages and all abilities to be active, support local businesses, and rethink how our community can be more livable. It's an opportunity to temporarily close the streets to cars and open them to walkers and rollers of all ages and abilities; allowing Missoula to experience our streets in a whole new way, encouraging community and building support for broader transportation choices.



Pulling off Sunday Streets takes a tremendous amount of effort and volunteers are crucial in making it a success! Sunday Streets volunteers are stationed along the perimeter of the route closure and are primarily responsible for counting attendees and helping people safely navigate the street closure. 


Sunday Streets' goals focus on walking and biking, community health, public space, and local businesses. Sunday Streets is not a fair or an expo; simply tabling is not what this event is about. Activity hosts have the opportunity to ignite enthusiasum and activly engage attendees of all ages and abilities.
