Doors Open Calgary

On September 28 and 29, 2019 many of Calgary’s most intriguing and beloved sites participated in Doors Open YYC. Buildings in all quadrants of the city, and even a few beyond the city limits, opened their doors – free of charge – to the public and provide special revealing tours and behind-the-scenes experiences. Whether you’re a geek for history, architecture, the environment, art, sports, science or engineering, this is your chance at an insider’s view of Calgary’s vibrant and dynamic cityscape.
