Halton Region

Event information

Saturday and Sunday, September 29-30, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Make sure you add Halton Region to your Doors Open experience this year!

Prepare to wander and explore – and don’t forget to bring your curiosity. We'll show you old-fashioned hospitality, Halton style, combined with a wealth of heritage, a twist of culture and stunning natural beauty. Hundreds of volunteers and staff in Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills will be working hard to ensure a second-to-none Doors Open experience. We are waiting to welcome you and showcase the hidden gems that we are so proud of (many not normally open to the public.) Historical buildings, museums, private homes, places of worship and cultural venues abound. We promise to provide plenty to see and do that will enlighten, entertain and connect you to our communities.

Take a short drive to Halton for your city, town and country experience and build awesome memories with friends and family!

Community information

Make plans to add Doors Open Halton Region to your outing this fall, whether for a day or overnight with one of our welcoming hosts.

Halton Region, just west of the Greater Toronto Area, combines small-town charm with the amenities of major urban centres, and is home to the City of Burlington and the towns of Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville. Visitors can paddle on Lake Ontario, hike or bike the Niagara Escarpment, shop in Canada's largest outlet mall or hand-pick fresh fruit and vegetables at one of Halton’s farms or markets.

We are less than an hour's drive from Toronto, Hamilton, Niagara, Kitchener and Vaughan. Spend Saturday in the south visiting Oakville and Burlington and Sunday exploring what awaits in Milton and Halton Hills. Our Doors Open sites will certainly appeal to all ages and interests – from heritage buffs and gardeners to nature and art enthusiasts. We welcome visitors to discover our charming private homes, curated heritage sites, unique businesses and lasting institutions, such as Oakville's old post office, 1830 Ireland House and Erchless Estate.

To plan your Doors Open Halton weekend, visit the Hamilton | Halton | Brant website or the Discovering Halton site. Halton is accessed from the Queen Elizabeth Way, Highways 7, 401, 403 and 407, with GO Transit services to all four of our communities.

Become a volunteer

Hundreds of hours of unwavering commitment from in and around the region has been donated over the years. Without our volunteers, who continue to be an intricate part of this weekend-long event, many doors simply could not be open.

  • Saturday, September 29, 2018 – Oakville/Burlington
  • Sunday, September 30, 2018 – Milton/Halton Hills
