Take a peek behind closed doors!
Doors Open Guelph is a day-long celebration of Guelph's finest buildings, creative spaces, and artistically or architecturally relevant sites, organized by Guelph Arts Council with support from the City of Guelph and a steering committee.
Our community has the distinction of hosting the kick-off event for Doors Open Ontario, opening the province-wide season of Doors Open events.
This is a free community event for all ages and no tickets or registration are required. The hours are 10 – 4, and you can begin at any featured site and visit as many as you like, in any order.
Visitors will be led in small groups through the sites by a tour guide who will tell the site's story. Some sites will feature activities and music. There may be line-ups at popular sites, and the last tour typically runs around 3:40pm to allow the site to close at 4pm.
This year incorporates special activities including guided art walks, dramatic storytelling at Gow's Bridge, a bike tour, rest stop and info hub.
