Online Jane’s Walk Festivals and Resources

The global COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible for many cities around the world to hold Jane’s Walk Festivals as usual in 2020, and continues to disrupt plans in 2021. Some City Organizers responded by moving the festival online, coming up with a variety of creative ideas for virtual Jane’s Walks and related web events. While we would all much prefer to be able to get out and walk, there are lots of benefits to online events; not only are they virus-free, but they can be enjoyed by participants anywhere in the world, and they may be more accessible than regular walks to people with mobility issues. They can also remain available long after the first weekend of May.

Here are links to online Jane’s Walk festivals and related resources around the world. If your city had, or is planning, an online festival, we’d love to add you to this page — please get in touch!
