Doors Open Grimsby & Niagara Nights of Art

September 22, 2012 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

The Town of Grimsby is proud to present the second annual Doors Open Grimsby Festival to be held on September 22, 2012.  Buildings and places of architectural, historic, cultural, social and industrial significance will open their doors to the public for a town-wide celebration.  Access to the sites is free from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm during Doors Open.

Doors Open Grimsby is designed for you to discover this unique, historical and scenic West Niagara town.  Explore, ask questions, and reflect as you travel to Grimsby’s meaningful places.  Learn the stories; interact; have fun and discover something new.  Make it an adventure.

This year, Doors Open Grimsby will feature some sites as part of the Trails Open Ontario Program. Please visit: for a full list of participating locations.

Along with Doors Open Grimsby, plan to attend Grimsby’s Night (and Day) of Art on September 22nd.  This event is part of the Niagara Region’s Cultural Capital of Canada 2012 festivities and features the many creative individuals who call Grimsby home. Practitioners of all creative disciplines will enliven Grimsby’s built and natural heritage with musical, theatrical and spoken word performances and a range of visual artists at work. There will be children’s activities in the GPAG sculpture garden all afternoon. The event culminates in the evening with an autumn garden party, music, teen video screening and more at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery. Our creative community welcomes you!

Niagara Nights of Art (NNA) is designed to celebrate the arts and highlight their value in our communities. NNA will be free, family-friendly public events that celebrate all arts disciplines:  music, theatre, dance, literary arts, visual art, media, new media, installation arts and heritage. As part of this project an NNA event will take place in each of Niagara’s twelve municipalities in 2012, and each will feature the artists resident in that municipality.
