What is Penn Fest?
Sometimes, Penn Avenue in Richfield is fairly quiet, and sometimes it's bumper-to-bumper with cars, but neither will be the case on Sunday, September 15 from Noon to 5:00 p.m. That's when Open Streets at Penn Fest happens. On that day, Penn Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic and cars will be replaced with fun activities like music, dancing, crafts, sports, kids entertainment and more! People are welcome to ride bicycles or stroll down the avenue to enjoy the street without motorized vehicles to contend with. Businesses along Penn Avenue will be showcased and will be a part of the fun!

Since 2008, Penn Fest has been held to promote area businesses in the Penn and 66th Street area, build a greater sense of community among neighbors, and give people a voice in the future of the neighborhood. In 2012, the event grew through a contract from the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota to make Penn Fest an Open Streets event, which is meant as a health initiative and lifestyle enhancement that will engage people in fun activities on the street of a community.
