About Doors Open

Doors Open Markham has been taking place since 2003 and is:

  • A FREE annual community-wide event showcasing Markham’s places of historical and cultural interest – featuring locations that are not generally open to the public.
  • A celebration of community heritage and culture. It provides residents and visitors with an opportunity to explore, on this one special day, the City’s unique and sometimes hidden architectural treasures, many of which are not normally open to the general public.
  • Organized under the direction of a Council-appointed committee of City staff, municipal councillors, and community volunteers. This event is one of a series of Doors Open events held across the province under the organizational umbrella of the Ontario Heritage Trust – Doors Open Ontario.
  • Supported by the City of Markham, community partners and local businesses. It’s a free event that draws visitors locally and from other places.

Since 2013, Doors Open Markham has been held in late September, and is a one-day event hosted by community volunteers.
