DOORS OPEN GUELPH April 25 2020 | 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

GO BEHIND THE SCENES FOR ONE DAY - Saturday, April 25, 2020
Doors Open Guelph is a FREE all-ages citywide celebration of Guelph's special places - often hidden gems - and rich cultural history. Hosted annually by Guelph Arts Council, Doors Open Guelph showcases local businesses, remarkable homes, and feats of creativity and engineering. Each year Guelph proudly kicks off Doors Open Ontario's province-wide season.


Doors Open Ontario’s 2020 theme is Environment, which will be reflected in Guelph at specific sites, including Sleeman Breweries, Campus Co-op Commons, and The Junction. This year’s event will also offer visitors several opportunities to be active outdoors, with more walking and cycling experiences to be announced. These experiences are presented in partnership with Trails Open and Guelph Coalition for Active Transportation.
