IMG_2464Help Support Our Community by “Celebrating the Stories Our Buildings Tell”

Each year on the last weekend of May, Heritage Winnipeg presents the Doors Open Winnipeg event. This free and unique community event is one of many Doors Open events that take place across the country and around the world, cultivating appreciation for built heritage.

In Winnipeg, Doors Open has attracted over a quarter of a million site visits to date, with visitors from diverse social and economic backgrounds. This event provides a valuable opportunity to explore, educate, and foster appreciation for Winnipeg’s built and cultural heritage.

Your support will help us:

  • Foster public awareness and understanding of community history and local architecture;
  • Encourage civic pride and active involvement in heritage conservative and development projects;
  • Showcase buildings and properties to potential developers, tenants and conservationists;
  • Recognize and celebrate those Winnipeg buildings which best exemplify the qualities and value of heritage


Heritage Winnipeg relies on the generosity of sponsors to support this highly successful event each year. Our organization collaborates with other community groups and businesses, contributing hundreds of hours of staff time to present this event, accompanied by the time and effort of over 500 volunteers.

Sponsors receive recognition in various ways, including the Doors Open Winnipeg website, poster and Winnipeg Free Press ad. For a complete list of this year’s sponsors thus far, click here.
