On Saturday, October 1, the City of Mississauga, in collaboration with local arts, culture and heritage organizations, is hosting its free Doors Open event.
Doors Open is a provincial program launched back in 2002 with the goal of providing “special” access to art, cultural and heritage sites. Doors Open Mississauga is a part of Culture Days, a three day celebration of arts, culture and heritage.
During the day, residents can explore more than 40 places of interest and learn about art, heritage, architecture and places of worship. Participating sites include historical houses, natural spaces, architectural buildings and cultural centres.
Among the places that will throw open its doors are:
