Artists will create special installations and give live performances along the Greenway.  Bike, scooter, or walk the Greenway to experience an event that brings our community together and celebrates local art and artists.

The arts festival is FREE, but we invite you to register as a VIP Bike Rider to help raise funds for the Midtown Greenway!  VIP Riders get coupons for free food, drinks, ice cream, glowing lights and more!

Note:  The event is 5-miles long and outside.  Social distancing measures will be in place.  Gatherings at each art installation will be monitored/limited.  Please bring a mask and hand sanitizer and have fun visiting the art!

VIP Rider Group Bike Ride

Join us for a Group Bike Ride for our VIP Riders at 4 p.m.

The group ride will start in Midtown and head east.  You can ride with the group and meet new folks from our community, and stop and check out the art installations along the way if/when you see something interesting.   A map to the art will be provided.

Don’t want to join the group ride?  Feel free to ride at your leisure.  Just be sure to check in at Registration between 3 and 6 p.m.  Pick up your map, grab your goodies, and enjoy your ride!  (You can also walk, scooter, or skate!)

“I am telling everyone about the Glow… my family all agreed it was one of the best things we did together all summer.” Rachel R.



While fundraising is not required, we hope you will ask your friends, family members, and others to support the Greenway by sponsoring your bike ride.

There are SO many people who love the Greenway and want to help support it — people tell us every year they didn’t know how easy it would be to raise funds!

To help make it easy, we provide all of our participants with sample emails, a personal fundraising page for online donations, and staff to provide guidance and fundraising support.

Online fundraising is available OR you can mail donations to:

Midtown Greenway Coalition

You can also make your own tax-deductible donation!
