Event information

Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tour your town in 2019 with Doors Open Peterborough! This year, Peterborough has an exciting range of sites to explore – from churches to radio stations to the water treatment plant. Learn about the city’s history and some of its unique buildings – and the people who run them. The day will feature special displays, demonstrations, tours and free rides on a historical trolley.

Doors Open Peterborough, in partnership with Peterborough Transit, is pleased to offer free bus passes for Doors Open visitors. In addition, Doors Open Peterborough is partnering with the 2019 Shifting Gears Challenge to encourage people to cycle to participating sites. Bus passes and maps outlining a suggested cycling route will be available at all participating sites.

Community information

Peterborough is located in the heart of the Kawarthas and boasts a wealth of activities for everyone. From museums and art galleries to the Trent Severn Waterway, as well as lakes and trails throughout the region, Peterborough is a great place to get out and try new things.

One of the city’s defining features is its incredible array of heritage buildings. Both those featured in Doors Open this year and those throughout the community offer an amazing glimpse into this historical city.

Peterborough is located just one hour away from the Greater Toronto Area and is an ideal spot for a daytrip to experience Doors Open or for a longer getaway to see some more of the things that the community has to offer.

Become a volunteer

Doors Open Peterborough is looking for people who might be interested in volunteering their time to make this great day possible. Join us as we partner with sites and organizations from across the city to bring Peterborough’s heritage to life.

In order for Doors Open to be a success, a large group of volunteers is needed to provide visitors with a friendly, informative and fun experience. Volunteer duties will include directing visitors to the sites, providing general information, ensuring that the integrity of the site is maintained and keeping a record of the number of visitors to each site. Volunteers do not need any previous experience to participate in Doors Open and will be provided with information and a formal training session prior to the day of the event.

For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, contact us at Thank you!
