Culture Days Return to Burlington

Residents are invited to get “OnBeat” and join the fun for a weekend of music, visual art, dance and other activities happening in Burlington.

The City of Burlington is participating in Culture Days on Sept. 28, 29, and 30, 2018, with free activities planned across the city. This year’s theme is “OnBeat” with rhythm-inspired activities.

After the success of Burlington Culture Days in 2017, local creative organizations, venues, professionals and businesses are again invited to host events during the ninth annual Culture Days weekend.

Culture Days is hosted by independent Burlington artists, the Arts and Culture Council of Burlington, the Art Gallery of Burlington, Burlington Public Library, the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, Museums of Burlington, and Tourism Burlington.

“The Culture Days weekend will entertain, inspire, challenge and move all those who participate in the free, interactive activities put on by the artists, creators, musicians, architects, curators and other creative people in Burlington. Everyone is welcome to participate and feel the rhythm or dance to the beat of a different drum,” said Angela Paparizo, Manager, Arts and Culture.
