Calgary businesses are opening their doors to the general public for the sixth year in a row as Doors Open YYC returns for 2017.

The event allows Calgarians to play tourist in their own city for free as local businesses let the public take a look at what goes on in their operations on Saturday, September 23.

Doors Open YYC started in 2012 as part of the Province of Alberta’s Culture Days. A total of 40 sites around the city will be taking part in the 2017 event.

“Doors Open is not only about exploring unique spaces in our city for free — it’s also about bringing people together,” said Alyssa Berry, president of the Doors Open Calgary Association, in a release.

“We often see community groups and multiple families traveling around the city in very excited groups — their enthusiasm is contagious.”

A full list of sites can be found at, and here are a few pictures from last year’s event to get the excitement going.
