Doors Open Calgary

Doors Open is a well-established and highly successful international concept that allows people free access to buildings in order to create enthusiasm for heritage and contemporary architecture and increase the appreciation of historic and culturally significant places and spaces.

We are so sorry to announce we will not be hosting a DOYYC 2022. Doors Open has been a long-standing community connector but due to the effects of COVID-19 on the local economy, we are unable to proceed and in need of title sponsor. In an effort to continue to provide this unique, family-friendly event, we are asking for your help! We are looking for great local people and businesses to help sponsor our event. If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities please email for more information.

The event is planned and organized by the Doors Open Calgary Association, a registered non-profit organization with a volunteer board.
