Support our efforts to make Denver the most walkable city in the nation!

On July 20, 2017, WalkDenver will be hosting our 3rd annual gala event and we’d love for you to join us! The I Walk Denver 2017 Gala will be a unique opportunity to experience the temporary transformation of a downtown street to prioritize people over cars. Held at the Square on 21st, you’ll have the opportunity to network with other pedestrian-minded individuals while you enjoy food, drink, games and more. This year’s event is truly a celebration of what happens when streets are for people!

The City of Denver, together with the Downtown Denver Partnership is creating a pop-up park called The Square on 21st for two months this summer in the Ballpark and Arapahoe Square neighborhoods on 21st Street, between Larimer and Lawrence Streets. Opening in mid June for approximately 2 months, this neighborhood gathering spot will test design concepts for a future permanent redesign of both 21st and Wynkoop streets, which residents and city planners envision as a biking and walking route akin to the Indianapolis Cultural Trail.

Tickets are available at the $40 Early Bird price now until June 8!  After that, pricing goes up as follows:

$50         Full Price              (June 9 – July 19)
$55         Day of/@Door      (July 20)

Your attendance will not only help support WalkDenver’s work but also demonstrate that streets designed for people are needed and can be successful in Denver. We hope to see you there!

Slow City: One Day in Denver was a collaborative project led by our partners at Walk2Connect. On April 26, 2014, 27 people walked 13.5 miles across the city of Denver in search of experiences that fuel the yearning for a slow city. A slow city where people get out of their cars and connect with the delightful and gritty nuances that make Denver home. And, where people travel at a speed where they can connect with their environment and one another.

Our project was part of the larger One Day in Denver city-wide, participatory media event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city.
