Join us for the Greenway Glow Arts Festival and Night Bike Ride on June 20th!

Save the date for our annual arts festival and night bike ride on the Greenway!   The dual event will be from 8 p.m. - Midnight on June 20th in the Greenway.  The arts festival is free, while the bike ride has a registration fee and donations that raise funds to support the Greenway.

Just announced!  We will also be organizing a "Family Glow" from 6 - 9 p.m., located near the Soo Line Gardens (one block east of Lyndale).  The free Family Glow will feature hands-on "make and take" art activities for kids.  It will kick off the larger Greenway Glow arts festival that will be from 8 p.m. - Midnight throughout the Greenway.

Register for the night bike ride HERE.

The artists participating in the Glow will be announced in May.  Check back for a list of times and locations.

We have issued a call for artist proposals.  Proposals will be juried and stipends of up to $500 will be awarded.

About the Coalition

Our founders had the idea for the Greenway, then formed the Midtown Greenway Coalition to get it built.   

The corridor used to be a trash-filled trench that was a disgrace to our city.  Now, it contains a world-class biking and walking trail that's the envy of cities across the nation.  In fact, the Midtown Greenway trail has been named the best urban bike trail in the USA!

Our work didn't end after the Greenway was built.  Now, we work to protect and enhance it.

A few years ago we fought to keep high-voltage overhead power lines out of the Greenway – and we won!   

We operate a nightly Trail Watch bike patrol; work to install more lighting and create safer street crossings; and operate greening and cleaning programs that help keep the Greenway green.

We raise all of our own funds and receive no operational funding from the government.

We're a coalition of individuals and organizations that love the Midtown Greenway and want to protect and enhance it.

Love the Greenway too?
