May 3-5

Explore Providence neighborhoods on foot during Jane’s Walk, a global weekend festival on May 3-5, inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs. These interactive walks are led by local residents and community activists who share stories and ask questions that get people thinking, talking, and connecting with each other. Jane’s Walks are free, and anyone can participate! Wear comfortable shoes, meet your walk leader in the designated meeting spot, and get ready for a lively discussion. PLEASE NOTE: Doors Open RI is currently on sabbatical, and is not hosting Jane’s Walk this year. But the program continues through our friends at PPS!
