What are these hubs?
The Delhi Walk Festival is travels through the city for the several days with most walks focussed around 3 regions. To facilitate this festive feeling, we create hubs with passive programming & refreshments for the festival participants. For all ticket holders, these facilities are free of cost.
The HUBS are centred around:
- New Delhi / Lutyens Delhi
- Old Delhi / Chandni Chowk
How are tickets for all walks the same price?
Good question. This incredibly attractive one price for all walks is the special festival price that all the walk organizers have agreed to charge. Most of these walks come at much higher prices, but they are being offered at this price only for the festival. All the more reason you should buy your tickets right away.
What is included in the INR 400 ticket price?
The INR 400 ticket includes the time charges of the walk leader and the processing fees for BookMyShow only. Additionally, your ticket gets you access to the Delhi Walk Festival hubs through the week. The participants have to bear the additional cost of any other expected additional costs during the walk such as food, entry tickets to monuments and transport (if any).
I want more information on the walk I am interested in. Whom can I contact?
The Festival's ticketing partner - BookMyShow has links to all the walk which give you in depth information. Additionally write to email@example.com for any clarifications or call on the festival helpline number.
All tickets to the walk I want to go for appear to be sold out, what can I do?
Too late! Unfortunately, you’ll have to pick another walk from the festival then. You can attend a festival only if you have a valid BookMyShow ticket for the same. You can always contact the specific walk organizer and request them for a walk in the near future.
How many people can I bring against one ticket?
Only one. One tickets enters only one person. Since these are all walks and not performances with a large audiences, it will not be possible to accommodate any other people if they don’t have tickets to the specific walk.
Someone else is also selling the tickets for the festival. Can I buy from them?
No. Only valid tickets from BookMyShow will be honored. Please do not buy the tickets from any other sources.

Do walks have any specific requirements and recommendations?
Yes, walks may have specific recommendations for things to wear or carry with you. Please read these very carefully on the BookMyShow page to the walk you’re interested in.
