In 2008 a total of 90 buildings were open to the public, although in fact, many of those were open for a visit any day. But paid venues, like house museums, waived their fees during the Heritage Weekend, which prompted huge lines in front of Song Qingling's residence, for example.
In 2009 a total of 78 buildings were open to the public.
In 2010, there were 80 participating buildings.
In June 2011 90 buildings were open.
In 2012, 80 buildings were open.
In 2013, there were over 100 buildings.
In 2014, there were 104 buildings. We went to the old town, with infant Anna in a sling, only to find the beautiful and mysterious Ever-Spring Hall crudely repainted.
In 2015, there were 78 buildings on the list.
In 2016, there were 104 buildings. That year, appalled at the pathetically low profile of the event, I posted this event on City Weekend's website, to get the word out for the English-reading public.
In 2017 there were 100 buildings. Still, no English-language list of participating buildings, only this brief.
This year – anyone?
