Culture Days 
Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture in communities across Canada that unites people, creates lively spaces and instills civic pride on the last weekend of September, each year. Every Culture Days weekend features thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities where the public can discover the world of artists, creators, heritage experts, architects, curators, designers and other creative professionals in their communities.

Brampton is keeping you ON-BEAT with a wide variety of activities in 2018 designed to bring you out of your home and into culture!
