Find yourself looking longingly at “Employees Only” signs or straying behind the velvet rope at your local theatre? At Doors Open Vancouver, you can scratch that trespassing itch, all without a trip to a holding cell.
On Saturday, October 3, Doors Open Vancouver will give residents a look inside 18 locations around the city, allowing behind-the-scenes access and a first-hand look at the city’s architectural, design, engineering, and cultural heritage.
“Building on the success of last year’s event, Doors Open invites Vancouver to explore the inner workings of many of our most interesting buildings and spaces,” Mayor Gregor Robertson said in a release. “These unique tours give participants a view inside the City’s architecture, green design, engineering and cultural heritage – and an inside look at how our City works for our people every day.”
