The Opening Our Doors festival — Boston’s largest day of free cultural experiences — was conceived of and founded by the Fenway Alliance in 2001 with this central mission: to “open the doors” of Boston’s most iconic & historic institutions for a free day of music, art, creativity, performances, and cultural experiences.
Join Fenway Alliance for the 22nd annual Opening Our Doors Day, a celebration of the Fenway Cultural District!
All free, all access to Boston’s art + cultural hub, the Fenway Cultural District! Performances, activations, art, music, dance, crafts, spoken word, historic walking tours, nature walks, garden tours, and more. Opening Our Doors is Boston’s longest-running & largest day of free cultural experiences!
