Again, can we "shop and stroll", "summerfest"..."...." every weekend? Ciclovia, street fair???

I think Albuquerque should shut down a large portion of Central avenue and other streets every weekend. They do it in Bogota, Colombia and many other cities and it's catching on. In a non-walkable,…Continue

Can we Summer Fest every weekend?
5 Replies

I saw thousands of people simply enjoying walking around and being in the company of people. Is there a reason that we couldn't block a few miles off every weekend like the Ciclovia in Bogota, LA…Continue

"I'm almost always a pedestrian, so I love this stuff, but tolerance is fairly low for shutting down Central on a regular basis.  Perhaps meeting in the middle would be more well received:  shut down the south side of Central only, and…"

"Las Cruces shuts down Main Street in downtown every Wednesday and Saturday (year round)---like three blocks---for a nationally recognized farmers/art market! Its a great street since it is very narrow (two lanes) with big…"

"Yes, a great idea. I love Albuquerque, except that there are few places to just stroll and be around people, maybe meet some of them. Aside from the parking issue, this would be terrific. (Maybe a drive and ride?)"

"It's possible and other cities do it. It's not about shopping or a dumb parade either. It's a way to get suburbanites out of their caves and to be around people. Most people that attended this event did not go shopping, shopping…"

"Yes and it should say "we invented the train!" lol. It should be a picture of ABQ's harsh reality and quirkiness."

"If you can find a place to rent on north campus it'll be quieter, safer, prettier and still close to UNM, Nob Hill and downtown."

"We should shut down central avenue every saturday and/or sunday and leave it open for pedestrians, cyclists and what not. It could be more organized though. Then we can have free yoga, dance classes, food vendors, crafts vendors and everybody can…"

I think Albuquerque should shut down a large portion of Central avenue and other streets every weekend. They do it in Bogota, Colombia and many other cities and it's catching on. In a non-walkable, suburban city it gives people a chance to do what we enjoy most, getting out of our caves and simply being in each others presence (it's true and it really makes people happy!). Call it a Ciclovia, street fair, "shop and stroll" or whatever CABQ wants to name it (pretending like they invented it),…See More

"I also enjoyed Summer Fest Nob Hill and wish we had a population that could support it on a regular basis. But I think that one of the reasons it is so well received is because it is an unusual event and not done every weekend. I sometimes think the…"
