Doors Open/Culture Days 2017

The Township of Oro-Medonte invites you to participate in Doors Open | Culture Days 2017.

Date: Saturday, September 30, 2017
Time: 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

This year Township of Oro-Medonte has partnered with the City of Orillia to present Doors Open and Culture Days.

Started in 2002 by the Ontario Heritage Trust (OHT), Doors Open commemorates and celebrates the fascinating stories that breathe life into our buildings and community. And in 2009, Culture Days was created to showcase all forms of culture and engage the public in the arts. In 2016, the City of Orillia combined the two events to partner artists with heritage sites to enhance the cultural experience.

This year the Township of Oro-Medonte is excited to be involved in the event as we grant access, to our residents and visitors alike, as they experience some unique heritage sites and art opportunities.
