CULTURE DAYS IN ST. CATHARINES

In 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.

Culture Days in Canada, A National Celebration of Arts and Culture

Each year during the last weekend of September, millions of Canadians engage in thousands of free events hosted by artists, cultural organizations, institutions, and municipalities in communities across the country—these events serve to showcase the importance of arts and culture in our communities year-round. St. Catharines has participated in Culture Days as a community since 2015 by providing funding to Artists & Organizations to assist with activity delivery.

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.
