Doors Open London (DOL) is the city of London’s largest collective celebration of history, heritage and culture. In its 16th year, DOL is one of the longest running community celebrations in Ontario.
This year's theme is London: Unconventional. Unbelievable. Unforgettable
. This theme is a way for partnering sites and organizations to highlight activities and ideas that the public might not normally be exposed to. From offering behind-the-scenes tours, to piloting a new program or activity, to trying a wild idea for the first time, DOL offers programming that will give visitors an opportunity to participate and experience out of-the-box ideas that will create unconventional, unbelievable and unforgettable experiences!
This unique two-day heritage event opens up spaces throughout London – free of charge – for local residents and visitors to engage with. It is a weekend designed to encourage local residents and visitors to explore, ask questions and reflect as they visit a variety of organizations and venues throughout the city. This vibrant program supports the local heritage community and builds civic pride.
