Here’s What We Know About a Major Oakville Event That's Happening This Weekend


Looking for something to do this weekend in Oakville?

Well you're in luck.

Culture Days is returning for its ninth year.

Culture Days is an event that aims to promote and help people discover the world of artists, curators, creators, designers, heritage experts, architects, and other creative individuals in different communities. 

Culture Days is typically just a one-day event, but this year it will span over the whole week from Sept. 28 to Sept. 30 at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community & Cultural Centre (QEPCCC).

People are encouraged to come out to enjoy free hands-on activities, live music, family-friendly entertainment, art workshops, and more.

The theme of Culture Days this year is OnBeat.

OnBeat is a drumming and rhythm-inspired event that strives to bring Canadians together to honour making the arts inclusive, fun, and accessible. 

Although most activities at Oakville Culture Days will be open for anyone to come out to, some do require pre-registration. 

Those who do pre-register for an activity are asked to come 10 minutes prior to the start time to also secure their spot.

If you chose not to pre-register but want to go to an event, you can get into the workshop providing there is still space. 

According to the town, priority will be given to waitlists printed when registration closes, followed by a day-of-the-event sign-up sheet available at the studios starting at 9:30 a.m.

In addition to just being held at the QEPCCC in 2017 Culture Days expanded to Bronte Village, Towne Square (Downtown Oakville), Lions Valley, Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, Oakville Galleries, the Oakville Public Library, and more.
