About the Ontario Culture Days Festival

Ontario Culture Days is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2010 to celebrate artists and cultural groups in our communities.

The Ontario Culture Days Festival is an annual celebration of arts, culture and heritage taking place each fall across the province. Each year, we work with organizers of all disciplines to produce this province-wide festival. Organisers host programs throughout Ontario and invite the public to participate for free.

The Ontario Culture Days Festival takes place between September 23rd to October 16th, 2022.

Ontario Culture Days lives at the local level. We support organizers from the smallest hamlets to the largest cities, while coordinating with other national and provincial Culture Days partners. We support the success of our sector colleagues through resources and network development, while highlighting the breadth and heterogeneity of Ontario’s arts and culture to the wider public.

If you’d like to participate in this year’s festival or explore ways to promote arts & culture in this province, learn more here.

Land Acknowledgment

The Ontario Culture Days network is active throughout the province and across multiple Indigenous territories. We would like to acknowledge Indigenous peoples as the original occupants of this land on which we gather.

The Ontario Culture Days office is located on the land on which the City of Toronto is situated, which we acknowledge is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples.

Ontario Culture Days is committed to creating meaningful relationships and supporting a diversity of Indigenous practices, art forms, and cultural expressions. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
