National Arts, Culture and Heritage Participation Event

Culture Days graphicSeptember 29, 30 and October 1, 2017 

Culture Days raises awareness, accessibility, partnership and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. With the support of volunteer groups at the national, provincial, and municipal/local levels, hundreds of thousands of artists, cultural workers, organizations and groups, volunteers and supporters self-mobilize to host free participatory public activities that take place in hundreds of cities and towns throughout the country over the last weekend of September each year.

With thousands of activities registered each year at, Culture Days drives a multi-national communications and public relations campaign designed to inspire and catalyze greater public participation in the arts and cultural life of our communities. Everyone can play a role in Culture Days: Whether you are already passionate about arts and culture or curious to discover new cultural experiences, an artist, arts or cultural organization, community group, municipality, library, school, citizen, or business person, you can participate in and contribute to Culture Days.
