New Date for Doors Open Jamestown is March 5

Unfortunately, the surge in COVID cases this month has made it impossible for many local attractions to participate in Doors Open Jamestown. As a result, the Jamestown Community Chamber of Commerce is postponing the event until March 5. The six-week delay is expected to provide the time needed for some of the smaller venues to more safely invite groups of guests. Some of the attractions will require pre-registration. A full list of participating attractions will be announced shortly.

Doors Open Jamestown is an opportunity for local residents to be a tourist right here in our hometown as it offers a free day at local museums and attractions. After moving the event to an online only video montage last year, we have determined to hold it in-person this year. Please save the new date: March 5, 2022 from 10am-4pm, and watch for details to be announced for our new text-to-win Doors Open Jamestown contest for that day.
