Culture Days

A National Celebration of Arts and Culture

September 25 – October 25, 2020

Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Culture Days programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities. 

Reimagined to engage and delight despite the times, Culture Days has extended beyond the traditional Weekend to a 4-week interactive, immersive arts and culture experience happening across Canada in-person where possible, and online. From September 25 to October 25, 2020, lose yourself in a labyrinth of hundreds of virtual concerts, live shows, exhibits, demonstrations, workshops and more – every option is free. Creators have been waiting to unleash their works and reconnect with the world, and it’s finally time for the curtain to rise. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure of artistry you won’t soon forget.

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 during the Culture Days weekend.

Culture Days Aims to:

  • FOSTER appreciation and support of the artistic and cultural life that is lived, created and expressed across the country in urban, suburban and rural areas alike;
  • PROMOTE direct interaction between creators and citizens, as a key to increasing understanding and appreciation of art and culture; and
  • AFFIRM that every citizen is the guardian of the cultural life of his, her or their community.

People who had never participated in the arts before found it exciting and rewarding, finding a side of themselves they did not think existed. To us, that is what Culture Days is all about.
