About

Doors Open Baltimore is the citywide festival of architecture and neighborhoods, hosted by the Baltimore Architecture Foundation. The event is typically hosted the first weekend of October with over 50 buildings across the city free to explore, and dozens of guided tours. However, in 2020 the program went all virtual and spanned the month of October. View recordings of Doors Open Baltimore 2020 programs on our YouTube Channel.

Baltimore Architecture Foundation hopes to return to an in-person event in 2021 alongside virtual offerings.

Doors Open Baltimore is presented as part of Free Fall Baltimore, presented by BGE and Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) and produced by Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA). The annual celebration features free arts & cultural events at participating venues and organizations throughout Baltimore City.

Funding has also been provided to BAF from Maryland Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020.

This Project has been financed in part by the Maryland Center for History and Culture. However, Project contents or opinions do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the Maryland Historical Society.
