Various locations throughout Metro Denver

  • Presented by the Denver Architecture Foundation, Doors Open Denver showcases Denver’s built environment with over 50 open sites and 59 unique Insider Tours
Headquartered at the iconic Denver Union Station, with a neighborhood anchor site at the Byers Branch Library in La Alma-Lincoln Park (Saturday only), Door Open Denver will feature high-profile, historic and artistic feats of architecture and design.

“This year, as we continue to encourage walkability as part of the event, Doors Open Denver is excited to feature a number of unique sites throughout the La Alma-Lincoln Park neighborhood," said Pauline Herrera Serianni, executive director of the Denver Architecture Foundation. “We invite the community and visitors to explore that area and other neighborhoods from the inside out through our free open sites, arts and culture activities and ticketed Insider Tours.”

Buildings that have never been a part of Doors Open Denver, or are featured infrequently, join the list of open sites this year. This includes Sprocket Design + Planning, Fitzroy Place/Iliff Mansion, Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, Denver Fire Station #1, Ross-Broadway Branch Library and more. These sites are part of the list of over 50 sites that are free to explore.

Doors Open Denver also offers ticketed Insider Tours that provide engaging opportunities to view areas of Denver buildings and locales not frequently open to the public. Architects, landscape architects, historians and urban enthusiasts lead the Insider Tours. Twelve of the 59 unique Insider Tours are new to Doors Open Denver this year.
