Welcome to Bristol Walk Fest 2020

The city’s hugely popular, annual walking festival – Bristol Walk Fest, a celebration of walking and walks throughout the city was planned to take place from Friday, 1 May to Sunday, 31 May 2020. However delivery of Bristol Walk Fest 2020 has been postponed. Adhering to UK Government guidance, and with the safety of our walk/event leaders and participants being of paramount importance, we hope to review the situation and deliver a full programme of events in the Autumn.

Please keep an eye on this page, and our Social Media channels for updates.

Bristol’s month-long walking festival, now in its eighth year, regularly attracts over 3,000 walkers from across the city and beyond.

Each year there is a variety of walking events on offer. Whether you like historical tours, nature walks, exploring street art, walking sports, or you just want to get fit and enjoy some fresh air, there is something for everyone.

The mostly free events are for all ages from young to old and all levels of fitness are welcome – walk distances range from less than a mile to more than ten.

Bristol Walk Fest 2020 is co-ordinated by Active Ageing Bristol in collaboration with The Anchor Society and St Monica Trust, working in partnership with Age UK Bristol. Principal funders are Active Ageing Bristol and Bristol City Council’s Access Fund.
