What is Culture Days?

Culture Days is a celebration of arts and culture that takes place annually in communities across Canada during the last weekend of September.

The goal is to build connections and highlight the importance of arts and culture, while breaking barriers and making the arts accessible to everyone.

Scugog Arts is the community organizer for locals and visitors to Port Perry. In-person events will take place on Saturday, September 25th and virtual programs are available on an ongoing basis.
