Event information

Saturday and Sunday, May 5-6, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

You are invited to Doors Open Hamilton’s 16th annual event!

Thirty of Hamilton’s oldest, unique and changing spaces will be open thanks to generous owners/managers!

Featured this year are sites in the North End Neighbourhood where Hamilton’s West Harbour waterfront is in the midst of transformational change. Visit 13 new sites and find parrots, a joiner (woodworking), churches that grew, an Inukshuk, Queen Victoria’s permission to use the word “royal,” and one of Hamilton’s first knitting mills. Explore new uses in old and not-so-old buildings, see green buildings and unique spaces that are rarely open to the public, and learn how some Hamilton spaces and landscapes have evolved over the years.

Check the individual site listings carefully for the days and times that each site is open and note any special requirements for access. Unfortunately during Doors Open Hamilton, buses/motor coaches and television/film crews may not be able to visit sites without making prior arrangements. Please contact the site directly.
