“People find themselves driving somewhere that might just be a ten-minute walk, and the way our streets are currently laid out, they aren’t necessarily built to support, energize and create a safe experience for all users,” says Jonathon Stalls, founder of event partner Walk2Connect. Stalls says that through neighborhood-awareness walks, history- and literature-themed tours, and business and career coaching workshops happening on foot, Walk Fest activities aim to promote livable, walkable communities.
The second annual NE Walk Fest begins at 9 a.m. on the lawn of the Pauline Robinson Library, 5575 East 33rd Avenue; check-in for themed walks will begin at 8:30 a.m. The event is free and open to all ages; for more information on activities and walking tours or to sign up in advance, visit newalkfest.com.
