Winnipeggers can explore the city’s rich history in a new way this weekend at the 16th annual Doors Open Winnipeg.
The free event features 112 buildings with architectural, historical, cultural, and social significance, making it the largest event to date.
“Doors Open Winnipeg showcases the most unique buildings to the public for one weekend each year,” says Cindy Tugwell, executive director of Heritage Winnipeg.
Some of the new participants this year are the Fortune Block on Main Street, the Manitoba Genealogical Society, Merchants Corner, and the Dawson Building on McDermot Avenue in the Exchange.
Heritage Winnipeg is also commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike. New tours include the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike bus tour, Strike
walking tours in the Exchange, and a weekend evening Hermetic Code tour with Frank Albo at the Manitoba legislature.
