Over 7000 visitors came out to Doors Open Guelph this past weekend to explore some of Guelph’s most architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings. Doors Open is one of Guelph Arts Council’s longest running and most successful programs. Community members, visitors from out of town, local volunteers, and participating sites enjoyed a beautiful sunny day of stories, history, and nosy peeking behind normally closed doors!
Doors Open Guelph’s success is due to the enthusiasm and hard work of volunteers who serve as tour guides, sweeps, greeters, counters, researchers, sign crew, and more. This year we had over 150 volunteers and site participants pulling together to create this 13-site event. We would like to thank our volunteers and participating sites from the bottom of our hearts for their efforts. They gave attendees an incredible experience. On a stunningly beautiful day, locals and visitors experienced and connected to our amazing community of Guelph.
Guelph Arts Council would also like to thank Grinham Architects, Site Sponsor of the Armoury, as well as event sponsor Downtown Guelph Business Association and media sponsor Guelph Mercury Tribune for their incredible support of Doors Open Guelph.
