Culture Days

The Department of Culture is pleased to announce its fourth annual Culture Days, a Canada-wide celebration designed to catalyze and inspire public participation in arts and culture. Barrie’s 2014 Culture Days weekend is being held on September 26, 27 and 28, 2014.

Culture Days is a collaborative pan-Canadian volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. The first Culture Days was held in September 2010 in over 700 Canadian cities and towns and, by all accounts, was a great success.

Barrie Culture Days is a collaborative movement between the Culture Days committee and the organizers of Art ce Soir and Carnegie Days. These three initiatives promise to bring you a weekend of amazing cultural activities that will be sure to tantalize your tastebuds, peak your creative interest and expand your perception of the arts forever. We invite all of you to come to the downtown core on the afternoon and evening of September 27th to experience Art ce Soir – an overnight art extravaganza, suitable for the entire family that will be sure to delight young and old.

Culture Days is a collaborative movement that relies on your participation. Everyone can contribute to the Culture Days movement: artist, cultural professional, arts organization participant, business person, or member of the public. Plan to come out and join this exciting cross-country network and invite your friends, family and colleagues to do so too! Interactive demonstrations, workshops and tours will be occurring in many locations across Barrie, including recreation centres, malls and downtown businesses.
