63rd Street to 76th Street along Penn Ave, Richfield, MN 

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 1:00 to 5:00 pm. 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! The event is one mile in length and attractions are spread out along the entire stretch of Penn Ave., creating an active and entertaining environment for all.
