The Fenway Alliance is delighted to announce the 14th year of Opening Our Doors on Monday, October 12!  Opening Our Doors is a day where the Fenway Cultural District opens its doors so the public can experience the gems of this uniquely culturally- and artistically-rich neighborhood for FREE on Monday, October 12.   Come join the 21 member institutions of the Alliance and enjoy theatre workshops with the Wheelock Family Theatre, Boston Children’s Theatre; indoor kite flying with Kite Education; art-making with SPARC! the Artmobile; Open Studios at Fenway Studios, walking tours of the Back Bay Fens; chimes and an organ performance at The First Church of Christ, Scientist; musical performances from the New England Conservatory; Zil Misik; and the Beatbus, a music workshop and performance  venue on wheels.

The Kick-Off celebration begins promptly at 10:00 AM on the Christian Science Plaza in Boston, located near the intersection of the Avenue of the Arts (Huntington Ave.) and the Avenue of Music (Mass.
