What is Walktober?

Walktober is an annual event to get people walking in Pasadena. Walking is a deeply human activity, and we're excited to offer walks that reflect a wide range of reasons and ways to enjoy walking. Whether you walk for physical health, mental health, to meet people, to see new things, or simply to get things done (maybe all of the above!), we recognize and celebrate walking!

As part of your participation, we encourage you to take pictures and post them to social media using the hashtag #WalktoberPasadena.


You can also submit photos from your walks to and be sure to let us know what walks you are participating in!
