Doors Open Vancouver
June 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Doors Open Vancouver (DOV) invites you to enjoy special behind-the-scenes access to popular Vancouver buildings for one day only! This free event connects residents with the buildings they know and love, invites them discover new ones, and encourages curiosity and conversation about Vancouver’s built form, history, heritage, and culture.
DOV will take place on Saturday, June 24 from 10 am – 5 pm
Events like DOV attract hundreds of thousands of participants in cities around the world like London, Chicago and Toronto. In its first year, DOV generated 8,600 visits. This grew to over 14,500 visits the next year. Over 200 volunteers take part each year. The excitement around DOV is growing and we’re looking to make it even better for 2017.
New for 2017!
Now in its third year, we’re looking to shake things up, adding some new highlights to the event. Up until now, DOV has showcased City-owned buildings exclusively. And while several favourites are returning, we’re expanding our programming to also include privately-owned buildings. Stay tuned for the final list of buildings coming soon!
DOV was a quick start action identified by the Mayor’s Engaged City Task Force, and is brought to you by the City of Vancouver in partnership with Vancouver Heritage Foundation, Tourism Vancouver, Cascadia Green Building Council, and the Architectural Institute of British Columbia, with other partners soon to be announced.
