Thank You!

Heritage Winnipeg would like to give a huge and sincere thank you to all the guests, volunteers, hosts, and sponsors of Doors Open Winnipeg 2022 that made the event a great success! It was wonderful to have this annual event return to May and even a few spring showers couldn’t put a damper on the good times! Doors Open Winnipeg 2022 was a fun and safe weekend that encouraged everyone to get our and explore Winnipeg’s wonderful neighbourhoods, filled with distinct spaces, outstanding architecture and vibrant history.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the social media contest and scavenger hunt, we enjoyed seeing all your lovely selfies and hope you had a good time finding our friend the Golden Boy. We also appreciate everyone who took the time to vote in the 12th Annual People’s Choice Awards. Both contests and voting is open until Friday, June 3rd at 11:59pm so there is still time to take part!

Doors Open Winnipeg may be over for 2022 but you can still enjoy some heritage at home with our Colouring Our Community, a free downloadable colouring book with 12 original drawings by local artist Robert Sweeney!
