Doors Open Denver, Saturday & Sunday, September 21 & 22, is a FREE annual weekend showcasing more than 50 of Denver’s interesting and unique sites. Click here for a list. It’s an opportunity to join behind-the-scenes tours of commercial, residential and religious buildings, plus theaters, museums, hotels, fire stations, schools, government buildings and other sites, some of which offer FREE interactive activities and special exhibits.
“This year, as we continue to encourage walkability as part of the event, Doors Open Denver is excited to feature a number of unique sites throughout the La Alma-Lincoln Park neighborhood,” says Pauline Herrera Serianni, executive director of the Denver Architecture Foundation.
“We invite the community and visitors to explore that area and other neighborhoods from the inside out through our free open sites, arts and culture activities and ticketed Insider Tours.”
Buildings that have never been a part of Doors Open Denver, or are featured infrequently, join the list of open sites this year. This includes Sprocket Design + Planning, Fitzroy Place/Iliff Mansion, Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, Denver Fire Station #1, Ross-Broadway Branch Library and more.
Doors Open Denver also offers ticketed Insider Tours that provide opportunities to view areas of Denver buildings and locales not frequently open to the public. Architects, historians and urban enthusiasts lead these tours.
Twelve of the 59 unique Insider Tours are new to Doors Open Denver this year. Insider Tours go on sale for $12 to the public on August 22.
