Get a spot! Engage with the community!

Your business or organization has the opportunity to participate in Open Streets Medford, a family-friendly initiative that transforms our City’s streets.

Being on the street is a great opportunity to support goals that serve to enrich our community and build a strong local economy through healthy living, active transportation, civic pride and increased personal connections with small businesses and local organizations.

To register for your spot, complete the vendor application form. Email complete applications to planning@cityofmedford.org (instructions for payment and insurance requirements are on application).

Spread the Word: Help fill the streets with potential customers by posting event flyers in your business, sharing a blurb on your community listserv, or including in an e-newsletter to your customers along with any special plans you have for the day.
