Culture Days

The Department of Culture is pleased to announce its fifth 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 was a great success. Barrie Culture Days is a collaborative movement between the Culture Days committee, not for profit arts organizations and the organizers of Carnegie Days at the MacLaren Art Centre. These initiatives promise to bring you a weekend of amazing cultural activities that will be sure to tantalize your taste buds, peak your creative interest and expand your perception of the arts forever.

We invite all of you to join us for the Culture Days Launch on Friday September 26th between 5:00 and 7:00 pm at the City Hall rotunda and taste some delicious appetizers, while enjoying fantastic local entertainers!  Don’t miss visiting Memorial Square on the afternoon of September 27th to experience Cardboardia – an entirely cardboard installation suitable for the entire family. Try your hand at creating an original design made out of cardboard – remember if you can dream it, you can build it! Or jump on a Barrie Transit bus between 10 am and 1 pm on Saturday September 27th and enjoy one of the many artists that perform for the Barrie Folk Society.
