Open Your Doors

Doors Open YYC 2019 will build on the success of the past years, which showcased some of Calgary’s best arts and culture, sports and leisure, science and technology, and heritage buildings in all four quadrants of the city. With the support of more than 50 volunteers, the 40 sites in 2019 drew almost 11,000 visits.

This is an ideal opportunity to help build civic pride and give visitors an insider’s peek on how your site contributes to Calgary’s ongoing story. If your site would like to participate in 2019, click on the button below. You will need to sign our Agreement of Participation that will be forwarded once you submit your site.

Become a Sponsor

The Doors Open Calgary Association is operated by an all-volunteer board. We are dependent on contributions from the community to tell people about the event. We would love to have your contribution. We will recognize you on our website, social media and other marketing materials, but even more important, you will help Calgarians experience more about this fascinating city we call home. Email us at if you can help.
