About Doors Open Richmond
Doors Open Richmond is a free weekend-long, city-wide public celebration of heritage, culture and arts that takes place on the first weekend of every June.

Each year up to 50 unique destinations will open their doors and offer culturally rich and inclusive experiences for free.  Sites include national historic sites, museums, places of worship, artists’ studios, galleries, city facilities and specialty businesses.

Doors Open 2016
Doors Open 2016 was a great success and we would like to extend our thanks to everyone who participated.  This year we had 42 participating sites composed of 49 local organizations that had over 12,800 visits from members of the public.

Our event and participating sites generated a network of 178 volunteers that contributed almost a 1000 volunteers hours!  The dedication and support of our volunteers help make our event the success it has been over the last 9 years.
