We believe in celebrating Pittsburgh’s diverse history and architecture, and so we work to “open” our buildings and cool spaces for all to enjoy and appreciate in a unique and innovative way.
Unlike other Doors Open/Open House cities, there is no primary financially sponsoring foundation or organization….just one very inspired Founder, lots of grassroots support and an amazing contingency of event-day volunteers!
Doors Open Pittsburgh was founded as a non-profit (501c3) by Bonnie Baxter, a native Pittsburgher, who was inspired by a similar event she attended while living in Chicago.
DOP debuted in October 2016. 4,000+ people showed up to experience this unique annual event.
Please consider making a comfortable financial contribution, which will go directly towards the event planning and implementation of the event.
Your contribution will also help subsidize affordable tickets, and keep it free for Under 18 and Seniors 65+.
