Doors Open Cochrane

Studio West

Humane Society

Studio West Bronze Foundry and the Cochrane Humane Society opening their doors to the public for a behind-the-scenes look.



For two days only, the public is granted access—free of charge—to municipal government and local business sites for exclusive tours, events and insider information sessions that allow them to get to know Cochrane in a way that has never been possible before.

Doors Open organizer Laurie Drukier said the event is a great way for the community to interact with local businesses.

Get a glimpse of how Cochrane’s water supply is drawn from Bow River and how state of the art technology is used to treat it. Get your picture taken in Council Chambers. Find out what happens inside the Eco Centre after you drop off your recyclables.

Businesses, cultural and faith groups and tourist attractions can also show off what they do: host a behind the scenes look at your building or operation!

Doors Open Cochrane takes place in conjunction with Alberta Culture Days when Cochrane streets are filled with locals and visitors enjoying art displays, festivals and other outdoor activities.
