Doors Open Richmond

June 7 and 8, 2014
Doors Open 2014 is Richmond's 7th annual arts, culture and heritage festival. Coordinated by the Richmond Museum Society and Doors Open Steering Committee, this free event allows visitors of all ages to explore Richmond's arts, culture and heritage at up to fifty partner sites through the use of a Doors Open colour brochure guide with complete listings, posted on-line, and available at local facilities and in the Richmond Review in May 2014.

A colour print version of the Doors Open Guide will be available at local facilities and in an early June edition of the Richmond Review.

Since 2008, artists, arts, cultural and historic facilities, museums, aboriginal organizations, religious institutions, parks and other public and private Richmond organizations have, not only open their doors to the public for free, but also provided free specialty programs and behind the scenes tours. Doors Open Richmond's unique and progressive approach to arts, culture and heritage programming has proved successful with almost 20,000 site visits per year.

This year, as part of Doors Open, an evening of music, heritage, and performance is planned for Friday, June 6th, 7:00 pm, which will serve as a kick-off to Doors Open celebrations. The festival will also include a major art exhibitions entitled, plus public art, gallery and artist studio tours. Heritage exhibits and cultural experiences will also be featured. Visitors will also enjoy interpretative performances, dance, storytelling, demonstrations and tours at Richmond's historic buildings and sites.
