Doors Open Pawtucket + Central Falls

After seeing the great success of our Providence Festival, we are excited to turn our attention to Pawtucket + Central Falls. On September 28th, the Doors Open RI Festival will hand the keys of Pawtucket + Central Falls over to the people through providing free, behind-the-scenes access to a collection of the cities’ most unique places.

About Us

Doors Open Rhode Island connects people to local places of cultural, historical and architectural significance in an effort to bridge communities and inspire new perspectives on our cities.  In partnership with a multitude of cultural and community organizations, Doors Open RI provides behind-the-scenes access to Rhode Island’s best-kept secrets through programs and tours planned throughout the year culminating in a biennial free citywide open house festival. Most of our programming currently takes place in our capital city of Providence, but we dream of someday growing into a statewide initiative.

Support Us

We believe that through welcoming the public inside the gems at the heart of our communities, we can strengthen the connections between people and the places around them. In this sense, we aim to transform our residents into advocates for our built environment and ambassadors for Rhode Island.

We can’t do this alone. While our biannual festival and many of our other programs are free for visitors, they aren’t free to organize. Your contributions will pay for programmatic and organizational necessities such as our program series and supplies, event guides, signage, marketing and staffing. Your support is the key to making Doors Open Rhode Island a reality.
