Doors Open History
The inspiration for Surrey’s Doors Open stems from origins in France where the first Doors Open event (La Journee Portes Ouvertes) took place in 1984. The idea soon spread to neighbouring countries and has since expanded around the globe.
Toronto was the first North American city to follow the European lead and launched a high profile event showcasing constructed heritage, architecture and design as a millennium project in 2000. The City of Richmond has hosted the event over the last 9 years, and has grown their community involvement to over 40 open sites throughout Richmond.
At each venue you can enjoy free guided tours, entertainment, and the chance to win great prizes! Use the tag #SurreyDoorsOpen along the way to enter the photo contest too.
