Take your pick of Virtual Tours, In-Person Tours + Archival Tours
Doors Open Denver 2021 will take place September 27 through October 17, featuring 10 sites never before offered during DOD. The 2021 event includes virtual tours, in-person tours and archived virtual tours. As with last year’s event, this year’s largely virtual format means that you can easily participate in more than one virtual tour, and even experience them ALL if you like. See the complete lineup below and register today!
In-person tours take place Saturdays and Sundays with four tours per day; times vary. Sites include Fruitdale School Lofts, McGregor Square, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre and City Park. To prioritize public safety, capacity for in-person tours is limited to 15 people per tour; each tour is offered twice. Members may purchase tickets $25; ticket sales open to non-members on September 13 with a price of $30. Click here to become a DAF member.
