Culture Days


Culture Days is an annual event that features individual artists, diverse cultural groups, organizations, municipalities, and festivals who come together to catalyze and inspire greater participation and engagement in arts and culture. The 7th annual Culture Days weekend will take place on September 30, October 1 and 2 and is expected to see hundreds of communities of all sizes take part from coast to coast to coast.

Culture is an integral part of what makes our community so vibrant and we are very proud and excited to be participating in Culture Days. This annual event is an opportunity to publicly showcase the enormous talent and creativity that exists right here in Mission. We encourage everyone to express their love of culture by participating in some of the fantastic free activities on offer. Get out and discover local offerings, roll up your sleeves and get creative!
