About BC Culture Days

Culture Days is a collaborative, Canada-wide volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.

This year’s Culture Days weekend will take place on September 30, October 1 and 2. Once again, the event will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes”—and to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.

More Culture Day activities will be happening in Coquitlam and throughout the Tri-Cities, including events hosted by the Evergreen Cultural Centre, Place des Arts, the Coquitlam Public Library, and the Coquitlam Heritage Society. Visit for a complete listing of activities.
