Heritage Events

We celebrate our heritage through events held throughout the year.

Doors Open Thunder Bay

Biennially, in September, historically significant sites in Thunder Bay open their doors to the public free of charge. Doors Open Thunder Bay is a community event designed to attract the public's interest in the preservation, protection and promotion of Ontario's built, natural and cultural heritage. This local event is conducted in accordance with the Ontario Heritage Foundation's province-wide standards for Doors Open events, which are held in over one hundred communities across Ontario. This event aims to encourage residents and visitors alike to learn about Thunder Bay's rich heritage through tours of private homes, commercial buildings, government buildings, churches, and other heritage sites which are not normally open to the public.

DOORS OPEN THUNDER BAY 2018 will take place on Saturday, September 8
