Windsor is staging its 12th Doors Open this year, featuring over 30 sites – many of which are new. From touring a well-known boxing club to a naval reserve and everything in between, visitors will see and experience some of the most interesting spaces and places in our city. St. College Students of the Architectural Technology program will provide guided tours of architecturally significant neighbourhoods. And the history of Ford City will be featured in a talk during the event. Many local restaurants will feature Doors Open specials.

There’s something for every taste at Doors Open Windsor.


Community information

Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada, located across the Detroit River from Detroit, Michigan. With a population of just over 215,000, it's the fourth most multicultural city in the country. The many ethnic restaurants and neighbourhoods reflect its diversity. Once known as the “Automotive Capital of Canada,” manufacturing shaped Windsor’s early development. With the decline in the auto industry following the 2008 recession, revitalization has given birth to a blossoming arts and music scene. The art gallery, museums, the symphony orchestra, the film festival and theatre companies are all gaining in popularity. Parks and sprawling gardens dot the city and grace the riverfront, providing relaxing getaways from the hurried pace of urban life.

Come to Windsor and stay for a while.
