Jane’s Walk Winnipeg
We believe that sharing a walk (or ride or roll) is a powerful tool for community change, and we hope that you'll take part...
Jane's Walk is an annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by Jane Jacobs. On the first weekend of May every year, Jane's Walk festivals take place in hundreds of cities around the world. Jane's Walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods and discover unseen aspects of their communities. Celebrating Jane's ideas and principles, we encourage walking together to create connections between creativity and community, to engage experiences as both observers and participants, and for shared reflection, questioning, and re-imagining.
Jane's Walk 2022 will be held from May 6th - 8th, 2022. This year's festival will be a hybrid event, featuring both live and virtual walks. Join a walk in person or choose a map and head out on your own. All Jane's Walk virtual walk maps are accessible throughout Jane's Walk weekend and beyond. Come back and try a new route anytime!
The Jane's Walk festival takes place annually the first weekend of May.
The walk library is always open! Self-guided and virtual walks can be done at your leisure, alone or with friends or family.
