Jane’s Walks Brantford

Jane’s Walks Brantford

Jane’s Walk is an annual festival of free, citizen-led walking conversations inspired by American-Canadian journalist, author, and activist – Jane Jacobs. These walks encourage people to share stories about their neighbourhoods, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect with their neighbours.

The walks run from May 4 through May 6 at various times and locations. New walks are still coming in, so check the Jane’s Walks Brantford Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.

Join a walk to explore neighbourhoods, new ideas, and meet great people.
