This weekend,  culture is king! Over 7,500 interactive cultural activities will be held in 900 communities across Canada for the sixth annual Culture Days.

It’s an opportunity to discover something new – to try a musical instrument, sing along with a big choir, attend an artist talk, join a musical jam session, or get your hands dirty at any number of creative workshops.

  • Centennial Theatre
  • Shipbuilders’ Square + Lonsdale Quay
  • Lonsdale Cultural Corridor
