Annual Event

DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh will announce the 2020 annual event date in early March.

Typically the event takes place the first weekend in October.

Whether you are from Pittsburgh or not, we invite you to be "nebby" and take a peek INSIDE a diverse collection of iconic buildings and cool new spaces, 50-60 total buildings, in 1-2 select neighborhoods.

Here's how you can participate in the annual event, Doors Open Pittsburgh:

Step 1: Review the Building List (announced one month in advance of the annual event)

Step 2: Make a list of buildings you want to visit, and share with friends/family

Step 3:  Buy your General Event ticket (on-sale one month in advance of the event)

Step 4: Simply present your General Event ticket at each building you choose to visit

Advanced reservations are not required to visit any building you choose - just be sure to check the open/close, days/times of the buildings you want to visit.

Step 5:  Once inside, you can have behind-the-scenes access, offered a semi-guided tour or self-explore!  Many of the buildings offer amazing views, unique access and experiences.

During the annual event weekend, attendees can also enjoy:

  • Insider Tours - Guided, thematic tour experiences that requires a separate ticket during the annual event weekend in October.
  • DOP @ The Square - Organizations that do not have a building/space to open during the annual event, AND align with the DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh mission OR represent the “Best Of” Pittsburgh, can exhibit at DOP @ The Square (in Market Square)
