Take a guided walk or two on Capitol Hill and in the Central District on Sunday as part of the annual Jane’s Walk day organized by Feet First. “Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, locally led walking tours.

You can meet the trees during the Volunteer Park Tree Walk (10am -12pm ), tour central Seattle‘s hidden gardens (2 -3:30pm) or Explore the Central District (3 – 5pm)

You’ve heard of TED talks. Now, there’s JAKE talks. “Inspired by TED Talks, JAKE aims to create a platform for diverse voices in the LGBT community and to spotlight the voices of a wide variety of speakers and thought-leaders. JAKE’s mission is to empower and celebrate our community through dialogue & culture.” JAKE takes place on Saturday at Gay City Health 10am – 3pm and features speakers sharing inspiring talks from a variety of topics of interest to gay men.

Navajo Star Wars screens at Northwest Film Forum on Friday (11pm) and Saturday (8pm and 11pm).
