36 events, 900 sites, 1 endless adventure

The Ontario Heritage Trust is opening the door to Doors Open Ontario 2019 and unlocking exciting architectural, cultural and natural heritage experiences this spring and fall season!

Doors Open Ontario encompasses 36 events including more than 900 built and natural heritage sites across the province. At each event, local programmers will share unique and interesting Ontario stories, take Ontarians behind-the-scenes of stunning heritage sites and provide one endless adventure to Ontarians from across the province.

“Doors Open Ontario is a chance to explore some of this province’s unique, interesting and beautiful historic sites,” said Beth Hanna, CEO of the Ontario Heritage Trust.

Drawing nearly half a million Ontarians last year and contributing $13 million to local economies, it’s clear that Doors Open Ontario is one of the preeminent events in the province.

The 36 events are happening on various weekends until October 20. If you are interested in unique Ontario stories, have a heritage site you are excited to see or are looking to plan a free weekend this summer and take a road trip, check out the Doors Open Ontario site for full details on each event.

“Doors Open Ontario is an exciting event that gets people out in communities across the province and puts money back into the local economy,” said Michael Tibollo, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “Each year, Doors Open Ontario helps us open the doors to the incredible history and rich heritage of our great province and I encourage everyone to get out and see the sites that this event has to offer.”
