Culture Days weekend is a collaborative initiative during which artists, cultural organizations, and municipalities host free, hands-on, and interactive activities during the last Friday of September and subsequent weekend. The aim is to encourage the public to explore the world of arts and culture available right in their local community.

Culture Days is a year-round champion for an engaged and active cultural life. Each year in the lead up to Culture Days weekend, a multi-level national awareness campaign is designed to inspire arts participation and support. Thousands of registered activities are promoted at, on social media, and via media partnerships.
