Culture Days

Each September since 2009, there is a weekend especially dedicated to the celebration of arts and culture.

Culture Days | Fete de la Culture

 

What exactly are Culture Days? From the website:

“Founded in 2009, Culture Days is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a national network of cultural connections devoted to providing Canadians with opportunities to participate in, and appreciate, all forms of arts and culture. Through an annual three-day national celebration each September, hundreds of thousands of artists and cultural organizations in hundreds of cities and towns come together and invite Canadians to participate in free interactive and “behind the scenes” activities to discover their cultural spirit and passion.”

Cities all across Canada have put together fun events and activities to help people connect with the arts and culture in their communities. Through this website, you can search to see if there’s something available to participate in near you.

Some of the events I’ve seen are community art projects, free trials of music lessons, art tours, drum circles, museum tours, family storytimes, martial arts demonstrations, dance classes, photography workshops, the history of clowning classes, aboriginal art work lessons, live theatre presentations, Celtic fiddling sessions, author readings, buskerfests, a paper mache flash mob, writing workshops, film festivals… and SOOOO much more. Many of these are family and child oriented.

Be sure to check for events near you on their website: www.culturedays.ca
