Doors Open Richmond 2022

June 2 – June 5

The 15th annual Doors Open Richmond (DOR) returns this spring as a free, in-person and online event from June 2–5, 2022. All in-person activities will take place on June 4–5, and will be complemented by virtual content available from June 2.

This year’s edition features 35 sites representing the city’s cultural diversity and rich heritage, including 21 that will welcome visitors in-person.

There are also five new sites that are participating in DOR for the first time. The in-person program offers visitors a wide range of activities. Saint Germain Bakery, one of the new sites this year, will give tours of their central facility where cakes and pastries are produced. Tours will conclude with sample tastings. Richmond Media Lab will show how to bring drawings and figurines to life using the magic of stop-motion technology. Visitors can experience a day in the life of a firefighter at Fire Hall #1, Richmond’s largest and busiest fire hall, with hands-on activities and demonstrations. Family-run restaurant Anar Persian Cuisine will offer an introduction to Persian food, customs, and traditions.

A special shuttle tour will be available on June 4 taking visitors to various places of worship along No. 5 Road, also known as the “Highway to Heaven.” The tour will stop at the Az-Zahraa Islamic Centre, Lingyen Mountain Temple, and the Richmond Jamia Mosque.

Most in-person programs require advance registration, with a select number of sites offering drop-in activities. Visitors can plan their weekend in advance by visiting www.richmondmuseum.ca/doors-open for more information.

The online component of Doors Open Richmond will be available from June 2 on the Richmond Museum’s website, www.richmondmuseum.ca/doors-open . Highlights include new videos that offer an inside look at the important work of Immigrant Services Society of BC and The Kehila Society, a partnership of Jewish communal organizations.
