The cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody will join hundreds of participating communities in celebrating Tri-Cities Culture Days as they offer nearly 30 free events from September 27 to 29, 2019.
This is the 10th annual BC Culture Days celebration weekend is when artists, individuals, organizations and communities from across Canada host thousands of free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to create, participate and share.
BC Culture Days
Try something new! The Tri-Cities Culture Days weekend presents a unique interactive opportunity that invites the public to roll up their sleeves as they are welcomed to enter the behind-the-scenes world of artists, creators and historians. The events are fun, creative, family-friendly and free!
In celebration of its 10th anniversary, BC Culture Days has selected 10 emerging artists from across the province to act as cultural ambassadors in their respective communities, encouraging participation and presenting innovative activities across a broad spectrum of disciplines — including painting, animation, carving, poetry, theatre, and dance — as part of the weekend festivities.
The ultimate goal of Culture Days is to make arts, culture and heritage a part of every Canadian’s life, whether by creating, enjoying, supporting or sharing.
