Jane’s Walk Providence 2022

An annual festival of free, resident-led walking conversations

May 6– May 8, 2022
Learn More:

Explore city neighborhoods on foot during Jane’s Walk, a global weekend festival on May 6-8, inspired by urban activist Jane Jacobs. These interactive walks are led by local residents and community activists who share stories 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. 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. Walks will be published starting April 15th. We’ll be adding more walks as they become available.


All Walks are FREE!  |  No Tickets Needed   |  Rain or Shine
