Doors Open Toronto

Toronto - Keith Thomson, CFP®, CIM®, FCSI®Toronto holds a lot to be discovered in terms of everything from architecture to culture. Even residents who have lived in the great city their entire lives probably haven’t stumbled upon all of its hidden gems. However, the Doors Open Toronto event is a great opportunity to explore the city.

Doors Open Toronto is an annual festival that was first held in 2000 and is now proudly heading into its 14th year. This free event will take place over the last weekend in May (May 25 and 26). During these two days, nearly 150 buildings of significance in one form or another (architectural, historic, cultural, or social) will open their doors to the public.

Many of these properties are either typically closed to the public or charge an entrance fee. Visitors will get to experience guided tours, special programming, displays, and in some cases, interactive activities and exhibits.

Buildings that will be participating in Doors Open Toronto include a wide variety of venue types, including:

  • Heritage landmarks and national historic sites
  • Churches
  • Educational institutions
  • Boardrooms
  • Breweries
  • Lighthouses
  • Mansions
  • Museums
  • Theaters
  • Cemeteries
  • Factories

The list doesn’t stop there. This festival essentially gives Toronto residents and visitors alike an all-access pass to the city at no cost.
