Doors Open Windsor 2018
Doors Open invites the public to visit places they might not normally get to see.
Participants include sacred spaces, private homes, museums, and rarely seen areas of public buildings. Each of the buildings will be of historical, architectural, or cultural significance. Windsor celebrates Doors Open every two years. This year there are thirty five sites, 12 of them new to Doors Open.
For the first time, the new HMCS Hunter in Sandwich will be open to the public, along with the John McGivney Children’s Centre, the Downtown Mission and the new J.P. Wisers Experience Centre, which will offer free tours of the distillery. Students from St, Clair College’s School of Architectural Technology will lead walking tours of three distinctive Windsor neighbourhoods.
Author Herb Colling will talk about the history of Ford City at St. John the Divine Church on Drouillard Road, and visitors to the neighbourhood will also get a chance to visit the historic Border Cities Boxing Club and the New Song Church…which was converted from a bar and a bank. And don’t forget to visit historic Sandwich Town which boasts the two oldest buildings in Windsor: the Duff Baby Mansion and the McGregor Cowan house – home to the Sandwich Bakery. The legacy of Hiram Walker will be showcased, as you visit Willistead, The Windsor Club, the Walkerville Brewery, Walkerville Theatre and the Devonshire Road commercial area. And the day wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Windsor Mosque, and the Hindu Temple.
This event coincides with Open Streets and Dropped on Drouillard so be ready for a day full of fun, food, culture, history and perhaps even a traffic jam.
