Founded in 2009, Culture Days is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a national network of cultural connections that provides Canadians with opportunities to participate in and appreciate all forms of arts and culture. Culture Days raise the awareness, accessibility, participation, and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.

There are events happening all across Metro Vancouver and BC, including yoga, dance classes, art demonstrations, author talks, and photography exhibitions. Below are a few of our favourite family-friendly events, but it’s worth checking out the full schedule HERE since there is something for everyone!
