Creative City Walk

Join us on Monday, May 18th as we walk for a creative city! Windsor Endowment for the Arts in partnership with and Windsor Essex Walking Network are inviting everyone to come out and celebrate the arts with us.

We are encouraging all local arts groups, artists, arts advocates, children, seniors, families, and visitors to join us to celebrate this regions diversity, arts and culture together as a community on Monday, May 18th.

Health, sports, businesses, environmentalists, designers, chefs, musicians, actors, dancers….everyone is invited to join Windsor’s Creative City Walk. Our efforts will reinforce our commitment to Windsor as a creative and cohesive community, while highlighting our diversity and strength – together as a group.

The schedule for the event is as follows:

9:30 a.m. – Meet up at the Morning Flight sculpture by Gerald Gladstone and warm up with Windsor Essex Walks
10:00 a.m. – Let the walk begin!
11:00 a.m. – Festivities at the Riverfront Festival Plaza including food and entertainment

This walk was held with great success last year and hundreds of people came out to show their support. This year we are doing things a little differently. The starting point will be at the sculpture Morning Flight by Gerald Gladstone (along the Riverfront). We will be walking west towards the bridge and meeting up with the Mayor’s Walk (which is also being held that day). The two groups will then join together, symbolizing a convergence and coming together of the two. Together we will walk eastwards toward the Festival Plaza and join in on the festivities being held there.
