Join us for a day exploring some of Grimsby’s best-kept secrets!

This year’s event will highlight some new sites to visit, along with some favourites. We will once again host a Main Street festival, complete with a classic car show and special food items to enjoy. Also back by popular demand, the vintage trolley will visit Grimsby once again.

Save the date – and see you there!

We look forward to welcoming you to Grimsby in September.

With so much to see and do, you will want to come early and stay all day with us. The Doors Open Grimsby event offers much to see and do, and there are many dining options in the immediate area as well, so plan to stay for lunch and/or dinner.

Nestled between the scenic Niagara Escarpment and beautiful Lake Ontario at the western gateway to Niagara, historical Grimsby provides access to a wealth of notable and tourist-friendly destinations.

Grimsby is conveniently located mid-way between Toronto and the American border. The town of 25,000 residents and nearly 700 businesses provides a perfect mix of big-city amenities with a small-town atmosphere and quality of life.

With arts and live entertainment for the entire family, along with a historical downtown full of renowned one-of a-kind shops and restaurants, Grimsby is an active community of family fun, natural scenery and historical buildings.

Volunteers make this event possible, so please consider joining for a fun and fulfilling day!

There are many areas where we need volunteer assistance – from site assistance on the day of to joining our planning committee. This is a great day to learn more about your community while giving back and meeting new people.
