Doors Open Guelph

10am - 4pm

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, a steering committee and over 100 volunteers. We have the distinction of hosting the kick-off event for Doors Open Ontario, opening the season of Doors Open events.

This is a free community event for all ages – and no tickets or registrations are required. 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 lineups at popular sites, and the last tour typically runs around 3:40 p.m. to allow the site to close at 4 p.m. At busier sites with longer tours, expect an earlier “last tour” and potential lineup cutoffs.


After a day exploring the Doors Open sites, save some energy for the after-party at the Civic Museum. Celebrate Guelph’s 191st birthday with pop-up art and history installations at and around the museum. Doors Open (Guelph 191) After Dark will be held Saturday, April 21 from 9 p.m. to Sunday, April 22 at 1 a.m. Admission is free.
