Culture Days was a huge success, despite the weather. On September 28th Perry St was host to presenters demonstrating various skills in the arts and getting hands-on with event goers. From Healing Ceilings to the Local Option Arts Awards – the day was filled with excitement and art exploration.
The event packed in 25 activities and brought out over 700 people of all ages. Visitors got to experience and participate in an educational guessing games with the Scugog Shores Museum and learn about spinning and weaving from the Scugog Shores Fibre Artists. At the top of Perry and Queen St was a stage that featured live music, with the Mitch Tones Band closing out the celebration.
Visitors learned more about indigenous culture and language at the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation booth. Guests surrounded Tamara Green’s table to taste her pre-colonial food creations. The drum circle also assembled a large crowd wanting to know more about their practices and beliefs.
Once again thank you to our generous sponsors the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, Vos’ Independent, Canadian Tire Port Perry, Practical Safety Consulting, and the Township of Scugog; as well as our partners the Knights of Columbus and the Port Perry Hospital Foundation.
The committee has already discussed bigger and better ideas for Culure Days 2020, hope to see you all there!
