Join the 12th Walk Around Philadelphia!

Walk Around Philadelphia creates cultural events that bring people together in shared  experiences that connect them to their own bodies, their neighbors, and the landscape of Philadelphia.

Registration fee: $15 / $25 / $50. No one turned away for lack of funds.
