Culture Days

We welcome back the annual celebration of Culture Days! This national celebration, scheduled to take place from September 24 to October 24, seeks to eliminate barriers to access and participation of arts and culture while encouraging appreciation. During this month long event, the City will invites the community to participate in FREE “behind the scenes,” activities to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work.

What is Culture Days?

Culture Days is celebrated in hundreds of cities and towns across Canada. During this month-long event, participants explore and discover cultural awareness in their local communities through visual arts, music, dance, theatre, architecture, heritage, film and video, literature, culinary arts and new media.

Why should we celebrate culture?

Culture is everywhere and is a part of every moment of our lives. We celebrate Culture Days to recognize the special place that arts and culture occupies in our lives, much like you would celebrate a birthday or an anniversary.
