The City of Burlington and the Doors Open Organizing Committee are hosting the 2011 Burlington Doors Open event on Saturday June 11 and Sunday June 12, 2011. Our 2010 event was a great success with over 5,000 visits to our 17 sites. See our fact sheet for more details.
Every year, Doors Open Ontario attracts large crowds across the province. From April to October, residents and visitors are invited to discover first-hand various communities’ heritage, natural and cultural resources. Since the program was launched in 2002, over 3 million people have visited sites participating in this exciting initiative. Festival and Events Ontario recognized Doors Open Ontario as one of the Top 100 Ontario Festivals for the past 3 years.
On June 11 and 12, residents and visitors to the City will be given the remarkable opportunity to learn about places and spaces normally not open to the general public or for which an admission fee is usually charged. The event will help our community celebrate its heritage, strengthen and encourage local partnerships and stimulate tourism and the local economy. Admission to all Doors Open events and sites is free! Highlights include historical walking tours, talks about the former Brant Inn, the Fine Art and Craft Festival, new sites including DeGroote School of Business, Ron Joyce Centre and Mountain Equipment Co-op just to name a few.
