Celebrate Oshawa at Doors Open 2018

OSHAWA – Doors Open is back for its 15th year! Join the community in celebrating the architecture and history of Oshawa by visiting 23 unique buildings and sites across the city.

Doors Open is on Saturday, September 29 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The free event gives residents an opportunity to discover and learn more about buildings and sites that shaped Oshawa’s history and culture. Many of these locations do not offer public visit or tours, so take this opportunity to explore the city!

In celebration of 150 years of Oshawa Fire Services, residents will be able to explore Fire Hall 6. (2339 Simcoe St. N). Housed in a building designed to honour the barns that graced Windfield Farms, the Hall will offer a visual tour of fire services history.

Other new sites for 2018 include the ACE Climatic Wind Tunnel, Durham Regional Consolidated Courthouse, Knox Presbyterian Church and Portraits by Goguen. Additional locations include churches and religious buildings, museums, Union Cemetery and the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame. Take in live music from the McLaughlin Bandshell, or even tour Camp X, a former spy training camp.

Doors Open Ontario is a province-wide celebration that provides a unique opportunity to explore and enjoy sometimes hidden and always interesting places and spaces in cities across Ontario – all free of charge! Doors Open Oshawa 2018 is organized by the City of Oshawa and Heritage Oshawa, and with the support of community volunteers and partners and the Ontario Heritage Trust. ­
