Community information

The City of Quinte West is proud to host its seventh annual Doors Open event.

Quinte West is situated on the shores of the beautiful Bay of Quinte, located directly along the Highway 401 corridor, approximately 1.5 hours east of Toronto and 2.5 hours west of Ottawa. Formed in 1998 by the amalgamation of the former municipalities of Trenton, Sidney, Murray, and Frankford, the City of Quinte West offers its residents and visitors a unique and dynamic blend of rural and urban lifestyles. Quinte West’s natural setting – with its attractive scenic backdrop of rolling hills, rich farmland, clean waterways and rich history – creates a healthy environment for working, living and visiting. The city’s special events and attractions – like some that you will experience during our Doors Open event – will make it obvious why we are “A Natural Attraction.”
