Get Involved


Participate in the Historic Festival & Doors Open Edmonton by presenting activities such as tours and special events that tell the story of our local history and heritage. Events can include tours of all kinds, storytelling, hands-on activities for families, special exhibits and more. Events can be free, by donation or charge admission. 

The Doors Open Edmonton part of the festival is a celebration of our built heritage. Get involved by presenting a free guided tour of your architecturally significant building or place. These tours can be of a heritage home, a new environmentally friendly home, a commercial building, a behind the scenes tour of a museum, historic site, theatre, place of worship, your neighbourhood and more. Doors Open events must be free to the public.

There is no cost for your organization to participate, your group simply organizes your event and submits the registration form. EDHS promotes your activities on the website and through a comprehensive marketing campaign that includes a printed festival guide, print and radio advertising. Festival guides are provided to your organization in late May.

Complete the registration form and submit by April 1st to be included.
