This year marks the 10th anniversary of Culture Days, with even more events planned throughout the region. Check out the unique local themes that have been designed to make planning your Culture Days adventure easy! Take a look at what’s happening, add in some points of interest, and enjoy local food and drinks along the way.
Everything Old is New Again: Traditional Craft Practices Meet Modern Tastes
Visit vibrant historic sites, museums and landmarks to be wowed by the creativity, perseverance, and skills of early-Ontario makers, then taste and see how a flourishing community of contemporary crafters, stylists, bakers, brewers, and chefs continue the tradition.
Rural Routes: Making Connections through Nature and Food
Our rural routes will have you celebrating nature and local food, the people who grow and produce it, and how food and growing can bring us together. Venture through the countryside to meet farmers, friends and neighbours, whether at a huge one-day festival based on apple butter and cheese, chatting with a local cheesemaker, at a community farmers’ market, or in a beautiful natural setting.
Mixology: Creating, Mixing, and Making Together in a Contemporary World
These venues will have you discovering a wealth of interactive hands-on experiences, as well as inspiring and thought-provoking events that showcase ways in which art and technology can boost our creativity, innovation, and richness of community in a fast-paced world.
