Come out and experience Worcester with “Jane Jacobs in the Woo”! Jane Week gives Worcester residents and visitors a chance to connect to each other, explore Worcester by foot and participate in interesting discussions on how we can enhance the design and function of our city. The event is named for Jane Jacobs, the urban theorist and activist who championed a community-based approach to city building. Jane Week in Worcester is primarily composed of Jane Walks, volunteer-led walking tours to inspire community-based city building, a pop-up parklet and other forums. Jane Week in Worcester joins an international movement that occurs the first week in May in cities across the world.
All walks and events during Jane Week are free and open to the public and will be held rain or shine. Pre-registration through the Jane Week 2017 Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/janeweek2017) or Eventbrite is suggested but not required.
