Celebrate Arts and Culture in Nova Scotia

At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Check out what events are happening in your province.

Culture Days supports a Canada-wide network of arts, culture, and heritage organizers to facilitate free public events in their communities every year during the Culture Days celebrations*. Whether as an arts or cultural organization, an artist, a municipality, a school, a citizen, or a business person, every Nova Scotian can play a role in shaping this event. Learn more about how you can get involved in the Participation Guide, or contact us.
