WalkBoston Annual Celebration 2023

Join us at the Venture Cafe @ 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142 or via Zoom to celebrate & honor this year's Golden Shoe winners!


Tuesday, April 4th 5:30 - 8:00pm

Each Spring we hold our Annual Celebration to honor achievements in walkability and to highlight the contributions of our wonderful volunteers, board members, and the many individuals and corporations who support us each year. 


Our Golden Shoes Awards recognize individuals, agencies, municipalities and companies exemplifying the ideals of WalkBoston’s mission. 


This year we are thrilled to return to an in-person venue as well as to offer a livestream option for those unable to otherwise attend. We will be capping in-person attendance at 125 people, so RSVP soon to secure your spot!
