Jane’s Walk Providence
An annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations
SAVE THE DATE: May 3 — May 5, 2019
LOCATIONS ACROSS PROVIDENCE
Get to know some of Providence’s hidden treasures during Jane’s Walk, a global festival on the first weekend in May. Inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs, Jane’s Walk encourages people to get out and explore their neighborhoods. Unlike typical guided tours, these free walks are led by volunteer citizen guides who share knowledge of their own communities while inspiring participants to think, talk, and connect. Providence is one of more than 200 participating cities with Jane’s Walks around the world, and that number grows every year.
As we approach the festival weekend, check back here frequently for updates. We’ll be adding tours as they become available.
