A three-week festival of free, interactive, in-person events centred around the theme of culture is coming to Burlington next week.
The City of Burlington is inviting residents to join local artists, cultural professionals and creative organizations to attend the 13th annual Culture Days from Sept. 23 to Oct. 16.
“This year, Burlington artists and cultural organizations are offering residents and visitors creative and innovative events and programs,” said Angela Paparizo, manager, Arts and Culture.
“I invite everyone to see what Burlington artists and cultural organizations are offering during the 13th annual Culture Days. This is a great opportunity to see our local talent perform and showcase their creativity.”
This year’s theme, RE: emergence, explores new ideas and innovation in arts and culture while committing to building tangible change in the sector and society. As we learn to live with COVID-19, the Ontario Culture Days Festival will offer a hybrid of in-person events as well as digital and self-guided programming.
“Burlington is excited to be a part of the 13th annual Culture Days. This coast-to-coast event does a fantastic job raising appreciation and involvement of residents in arts and culture,” said Chris Glenn, director of Recreation, Community and Culture.
“I invite Burlington residents to join local artists, cultural professionals and creative organizations and partake in many free events this year and taking advantage of Burlington’s award-winning Culture Days.”
Culture Days has become the largest cultural event in Canada, attracting an estimated 2.5 million annual attendees to thousands of free activities and performances hosted by artists, cultural organizations and municipalities in hundreds of communities across Canada.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
