Doors Open London

Untold Stories of the Forest City

Doors Open London is a free weekend celebration of everything that makes our city an amazing place to live.

Doors Open London is the city of London’s largest collective celebration of history, heritage and culture. Celebrating its 18th year, Doors Open London is one of the longest running community celebrations in Ontario.

Doors Open London took place on September 14 15, 2019. The family-friendly two-day event offered access to heritage and cultural sites, free of charge. Visitors got an inside look at London's many museums, heritage sites, and community organizations and heard London’s untold stories during the annual Doors Open London weekend! 

“Untold Stories of the Forest City” centred on the diverse ways Londoners connect and share information, express their cultural traditions and identities, and connect to the wider world. From technologies such as television and radio broadcasting connecting people across the City, to the expression of Indigenous oral traditions, communication animates London, Ontario, and brings our stories to life. Participants enjoyed re-enactments, live performances, or other interactive performances as participating sites highlighted their less-known stories and histories.
