Join us for the 33rd Annual Walktober!

2017 Walktober at Steerage Rock with Larry Lowenthal, Mike Bartlett and Bill Reid.

Walktober 2023

Walktober will be held September 16 to November 6, 2023

The deadline to submit adventures for inclusion in the printed Walktober calendar is June 20, 2023.

We're celebrating 33 years of Walktober in 2023! We know from the past few years of Walktober that we can safely provide plenty of opportunities, in partnership with a wide variety of groups, to help people best experience what makes this region worthy of being a National Heritage Corridor. We have wide-open spaces to explore with walks, hikes, historic tales, paddles, bike rides, farm visits, and more offered by dedicated and passionate Walktober leaders and the generous sponsors that make it happen. Thank you to them all!

Looking to experience your own adventures? Visit our online calendar here. The online calendar of events provides the most accurate and up to date information on Walktober, including cancellations and additions. Here you can view the 2022 print brochure here for a sampling of prior experiences.

Events submitted typically involve the broad themes of nature, history, culture and community with walks, fairs, talks, tours, pedals, paddles, festivals and more being hosted by towns, non-profits and businesses alike.

Leaders - find the online submission form here and please read our Walktober Event Submission Tips regarding event difficulty, ex. the difference between a hike vs. a walk. Call 860-774-3300 or email with any questions or to talk through any ideas.
