With 40 venues in one day, it’s  impossible to cover them all.

The City of Mississauga will literally have its ‘doors open’ to all who are interested in learning more about local art, culture and heritage.
The event runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Here’s a guide to rounding down the choices.
If you like beer, check out the Old Credit Brewing Company — you may even leave with a case.
Doors Open is calling all animals lovers to visit the Mississauga Animal Services facility for a guided tour and yes, this includes holding kittens and puppies and hearing about volunteer opportunities.
For those looking to immerse themselves in multiculturalism, there are a number of houses of worship to be discovered. Check out the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple for a meditation session, or tour the 10,000 square-foot prayer hall within the Hindu Heritage Centre and enjoy some complimentary refreshments.

Elders from the New Credit First Nations and the Metis Nation of Ontario will host a ‘teaching gathering’ at the Grange-Robinson-Adamson House. Topics include medicines, water, fire, ceremony, singing and drumming.
Feel like busting a move?
The Sampradaya Dance Centre will be offering interactive dance performances with special guests after 2 p.m.
For those who want to ‘sit back and enjoy the show’, there’s a production of Snow White at the Meadowvale Theatre. The interactive show includes eight dwarves, a talking horse and a hands-on science element.
