Clear your weekend schedule!

If you want to explore the city’s arts and culture scene while also appreciating its heritage and diversity, you might be happy to know that Mississauga’s annual Doors Open event is happening this weekend.

On Saturday, Oct. 1, the city will host the sizeable free event in collaboration with local arts, culture and heritage organizations. The day — which a lot of people don’t know about — offers residents a chance to see the gorgeous and historic sites that imbue Mississauga with authenticity and colour.

During the event, residents will be able to explore over 40 places and learn about art, heritage, architecture and places of spiritual significance.

The event will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will take place in various spaces in the city. As far as the sites go, the range of places you can visit free of charge is vast. Some participating locations include the charming Leslie Log House (featured in our cover photo), the Bradley Museum, the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple and more.

You can also enjoy a Streetsville Historical Village Walking Tour (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) or a Downtown Mississauga Walking Tour.


You can see the impressive array of activities and participating locations here.

Oh, and did we mention that you can visit the much talked about Koliba Park (the quaint, fenced off space in the Streetsville area that’s operated by the Slovak Canadian Culture Society that boasts a row of small cabins that have piqued people’s curiosity for years)?

You can also visit the Old Credit Brewing Company if you’re into local craft brews and pick out a potential future pet during a visit to Mississauga Animal Services.

There really is a little something for everyone.
