Culture Days invites everyone to explore, discover and participate in arts and culture in every community across the country. In 2015, more than 2 million people participated in 7,600 activities in nearly 900 cities and towns. Last year, more than 2000 activities were presented across Ontario.
This year’s Culture Days weekend will take place on September 29, 30 and October 1, 2017. Once again, the event will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes”—and to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.
As a grassroots, collaborative movement, Culture Days relies on your participation. Whether as an arts or cultural organization, an artist, a municipality, a school, a citizen, a business person…everyone can play a role in shaping this event. So get involved!
Culture Days takes place on the last Friday in September and the following weekend each year.
