Culture Days

Culture Days 

Held each year on the last weekend of September.

Each year, a variety of activities are held throughout St. Catharines at new and returning venues. Participants are given the opportunity to get creative, get messy, engage with performances, make art and experience culture!

Culture Days is a Canada-wide celebration that is the largest-ever public participation campaign undertaken by the arts and cultural community in this country. Culture Days features FREE hands-on activities that invite the public to participate in the "behind-the-scenes" experiences. 

The Culture Days Activity Program Funding

As part of the St. Catharines Cultural Investment Program (SCCIP), the City offers the Culture Days Activity Program, intended for artists, businesses or organizations who wish to run a Culture Days activity in St. Catharines.

Applications for 2019 programs will be available in late Fall 2018.

The upcoming application deadline will be March 2019 for September 2019 activities.

For more information, including application guidelines and eligibility criteria, please visit our SCCIP Development Funding page. 

Passport to Culture

 What is the Passport to Culture?

New in 2018, at participating activities, participants received stamps as they visited activities and worked to fill up their "Passport to Culture". Passports were then submitted to win prizes.
