Culture Days Yorkton

Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of free participatory arts and culture events across the country both in-person and online. 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.

The next national Culture Days celebration will take place September 22nd through October 15th, 2023 for three glorious weeks of colour, creativity, and community.

The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation occurs on September 30, 2023. This day honours the lost children and survivors of residential schools and their families, and endeavours to acknowledge and better understand the history and harms done. Public commemoration is a vital component of the reconciliation process, and Culture Days is committed to marking and honouring this important day.

The Culture Days national organization supports a Canada-wide network of arts, culture, and heritage organizers to facilitate free public events in their communities every year during Culture Days.

Culture Days aims to:

  • FOSTER appreciation and support of the artistic and cultural life that is lived, created and expressed across the country in urban, suburban and rural areas alike;
  • PROMOTE direct interaction between creators and the public, as a key to increasing understanding and appreciation of art and culture; and
  • AFFIRM that every citizen is the guardian of the cultural life of his, her or their community.
