Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture.

At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Culture Days programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

This year Caledon community groups, artists, musicians, local libraries and theatre groups will host a variety of activities in four locations over the last weekend of September.
