Culture Days Is Back!

What is Culture Days?

Culture Days is a nationwide celebration of culture and arts that traditionally takes place the last weekend of September every year. The festivities bring together thousands of organizers to host free and participatory public activities, along with millions of Canadians to engage with them. The goal is to build connections and highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

This year, due to COVID-19 the celebration has been extended to 4-weeks and will include virtual experiences for the first time.
