Doors Open Toronto 2019

Doors Open Toronto goes back to the future for its 20th anniversary edition.




The 20th annual Doors Open Toronto presented by Great Gulf returns on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 to showcase some of the most architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city. 

This year's anniversary theme and programming will focus on "20 Something" and will celebrate the first 20 years of Doors Open Toronto while looking forward to the next 20 years. 

A series of walking tours will highlight the social impact of the Queen Street East and Riverside neighbourhoods, as well as exploring the LGTBQ2S heritage of King Street and engineering advancements that occurred across Toronto. 

Toronto's Indigenous past, present and future will be interwoven through the event locations with panels, films and special programming taking place throughout the weekend. 

Toronto City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square will be a focus, with numerous displays and interactive opportunities scheduled. A panel discussion at The Bentway will gather established Toronto city-builders to speak of past and ongoing profile development projects and the future of city building in Toronto. 

More details including a complete list of this year's buildings, walking tours, talks and programs will be available on May 1 at toronto.ca/doorsopen
