Richmond’s artists and cultural organizations are invited to register and host free events during the 15th annual Culture Days, a three-week celebration of arts and culture taking place between September 20 and October 13.

Culture Days, celebrated nationally and experienced locally, shines a spotlight on the talents of artists, chefs, dancers, designers, makers, musicians, performers, photographers, writers and others who open their work spaces to the public or present free, hands-on or instructional activities.

For artists and other creative individuals, Culture Days is a unique opportunity to share arts and culture practices and introduce residents and visitors to Richmond’s vibrant arts and culture community. For groups and organizations, Culture Days is a recognized platform to increase community engagement, reach new audiences and enhance member recruitment.

Richmond is consistently recognized as being among Culture Days’ top 10 most engaged cities in the country with a wide array of free, participatory activities to discover across the city and online.

Through participation in the program, Richmond-based organizers will receive promotional support through a robust multi-tiered marketing campaign from the City of Richmond, BC Culture Days and the national Culture Days organization. Events and activities registered by Wednesday, July 31 become eligible for promotion at all three levels.

Event registration is now open at culturedays.ca. The website offers free resources to plan events, inspiration for in-person and online activities, and resources for Indigenous cultural programs, volunteer management, documenting events and a school engagement toolkit.

In addition to marketing support, the City can offer support in connecting event hosts to creative spaces and venues. For more information about Culture Days in Richmond, visit richmond.ca/CultureDays or email culture@richmond.ca.
