Barrio Tours

This is my Neighborhood | Community Walking Tours

Sun. June 18 • 11am-1pm - This is a walking tour, but you can also bring your bicycle and ride along.

Thu. Aug. 10 • 5:30-7pm pm - We will allow time during this tour to stop at any of the Chimi Trucks lined up on Broad Street.

Thu. Sept. 7• 5:30-6:30pm - At the end of this tour, we will wind down with an informal Bachata session.


Learn about the history of Broad Street, dating back to the 1700s, and its transformation in the 1960s, when Latinos began to settle, rebuild, and make La Broa' what it is today.

NOTE: We will be walking on busy sidewalks and crossing a highway overpass. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
At the end of each tour, we will gather at the Roger Williams Park Gateway Center @Broad Street to reflect on the tour — what does Broad Street mean to you? Share your memories of Broad Street. Refreshments will be served.
