North Shore Culture Days this weekend!

The third annual Culture Days weekend kicks off in communities across Canada this Friday, September 28 and runs through Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th. Here on Vancouver's North Shore, we're embarking on our first-ever North Shore Culture Days celebrations with FREE activities happening in theatres, libraries, artist studios, community centres, hotels and cafes from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay.

Arts and culture are an integral part of what makes our community so vibrant and we are very proud and excited to be participating in Culture Days. This annual event is an opportunity to publicly showcase the enormous talent and creativity that exists here in our community.
