The Town of New Tecumseth is working with Tourism Simcoe County and its municipal partners to add to this year’s Simcoe County Doors Open, a free event aimed at opening doors to the community’s cultural and heritage sites.
Each year, communities across Ontario take part in the Doors Open program to provide complimentary access to cultural and heritage locations to the public for one day. This county-wide event aligns with the Culture Days weekend and offers a showcase of local heritage and cultural sites.
On Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven sites across New Tecumseth will participate in the event. Whether you are exploring on your own or with family and friends, Doors Open has something for everyone.
New Tecumseth sites participating this year include:
- Beattie’s Distillers (6673 Line 13)
- Museum on the Boyne (250 Fletcher Crescent)

They have evolved from a potato farm to a farm that grows, harvests and distils potatoes for distilled spirits, including an award-winning vodka.
