Culture Days is back with three weeks of events showcasing Brampton’s mosaic with artist workshops, guided tours, musical performances and much more.

The annual Culture Days festival kicked off on Friday (Sept. 22), inviting Bramptonians to discover and take part in arts and cultural events celebrating Canada’s diversity.

The Canada-wide celebration of arts and culture runs until Oct. 15 and there are plenty of Brampton events for residents to mingle with artists, creators, historians, architects, filmmakers, curators and designers at work in the community.
