Statement by Cindy Tugwell on Doors Open Winnipeg

Statement

Dear Heritage Winnipeg Friends,

Heritage Winnipeg has just made the difficult decision to postpone Doors Open Winnipeg 2020, but on a positive note we are rescheduling this event, which will now take place over the weekend of September 12th and 13th, 2020.

After thoughtful consideration and consultation with our board of directors and stakeholders, it has become clear that in light of these challenging times it is not possible to deliver our event on the original dates of May 30th and 31st, 2020. The safety of all our hosts, volunteers and guests is of the utmost importance and will always take top priority when planning Doors Open Winnipeg, making this postponement in the best interest of all.

Heritage Winnipeg will now be working diligently towards the rescheduled Doors Open Winnipeg 2020 event, keeping everyone informed.

Should COVID-19 continue to endanger the health of the community come September, Heritage Winnipeg will act on the advice of public health officials and cancel the event. Cancellation would be our last choice but will be done if necessary, in the interest of everyone’s safety.

Thank you for your understanding and support in these challenging times.

Stay home, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you to celebrate the stories our buildings tell on September 12th and 13th, 2020!

Best regards,
Cindy Tugwell
Executive Director
Heritage Winnipeg
