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, an 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, a pop-up parklet, a film and forum. Jane Week in Worcester joins an international movement that occurs the first week in May in over 250 cities across the world. Check out incredible events throughout Jane Week including:
