Doors Open Guelph

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.
