Burlington, Ont.—Sept. 22, 2020—The City of Burlington is inviting residents to join interactive online events and activities during the 11th annual Culture Days.

Culture Days is extending beyond the traditional Culture Days weekend to a more inclusive and interactive four-week schedule of activities. Kicking off Sept. 25 and running until Oct. 25, Culture Days invites everyone to participate in and show appreciation for arts and culture in their own community and nationwide.

“I would like to thank those who made Culture Days Burlington 2020 possible: our arts and culture community; the Burlington Performing Arts Centre; Royal Botanical Garden; Museums of Burlington; Art Gallery of Burlington and Tourism Burlington. For many years, including these challenging times, our cultural partners continue to play a key role in providing various activities for our residents during Culture Days, making Burlington a top 10 event out of hundreds of municipalities.” —  Emilie Cote, Acting Director of Recreation Services, City of Burlington

This year’s theme is Unexpected Intersections – encouraging creative and outside-the-box thinking to reveal new avenues of discovery, learning, and expression. In light of the current situation with COVID-19, Culture Days is featuring digital presentations, do-it-yourself activities and self-guided programs. The Culture Days website showcases thousands of virtual and in-person activities. Visitors can find small-gathering or self-guided events near them, while going digital allows participants to virtually cross the country and discover live-streamed performances and other online presentations.

If you would like to find a Culture Days event, visit burlington.ca/culturedays or culturedays.ca.

“While Burlington’s Culture Days looks different this year due to COVID-19, this is an opportunity for Burlington residents to discover artists and cultural organizations in our community and across Canada virtually. I encourage residents to join the Burlington arts and culture community for another successful Culture Days this year.” —  Angela Paprizo, Manager of Arts and Culture, City of Burlington

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
