 What is Jane’s Walk?

Jane’s Walk is a global festival of free, locally organized walking tours through which people explore, talk about, and celebrate their neighbourhoods. Named after Jane Jacobs, an author and activist who championed a fresh community-based approach to city building, the walks take place around the world on the first full weekend of May. Jane’s Walk in Calgary is organized by Calgary Foundation. Details here.
