Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. 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 Culture Days organization supports a Canada-wide network of arts, culture, and heritage organizers to facilitate free public events in their communities every year during the Culture Days weekend.

In Whitehorse, the Yukon Arts Centre along with many partners will have a wide variety of activities planned all over the city, September 26 & 27. All events are great for families, with lots of hands-on experiences for the children and adults alike.

Be sure to drop by the Yukon Arts Centre’s Culture Hub at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre on September 26.
