What is Culture Days?
Culture Days is a Canada-wide celebration designed to catalyze and inspire public participation in arts and culture.
Culture Days programs invite the public to show appreciation for arts and culture in their own communities and nationwide. The Culture Days organization supports a Canada-wide network of arts, culture, and heritage organizers to facilitate free public events in their communities every year.
Running September 22 until October 15, 2023, Culture Days events and activities promise to spark creativity, build community, and celebrate nationally.
