JAMESTOWN – An event that has traditionally “turned the tables” allowing Jamestown residents to act as tourists for the day with free admission to local attractions has been reschedule due to COVID-19.

The Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce’s Doors Open Jamestown event will now take place on March 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“The six-week delay is expected to provide the time needed for some of the smaller venues to more safely invite groups of guests,” the chamber said in a statement. “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 in their hometown as it offers a free day at local museums and attractions.

After moving the event to an online only video montage last year, the Chamber of Commerce has been determined to hold it in-person this year.
