Artists and community groups across Kelowna will celebrate the sixth annual Culture Days Sept. 25 – 27 and everyone is invited to the party. More than 40 activities and events are planned for the weekend to inspire residents to create, participate and share.
“Culture Days is a chance to get out there and explore,” says Sandra Kochan, Cultural Services Manager. “Doors are open, it’s free to attend and there are always surprises. Artists and cultural groups are inviting you into their world to have some fun, try something new, and maybe learn a bit more about all of the great art and culture that is happening in Kelowna. How often do you get a chance to help someone paint their vintage VW van, eat an authentic Chinese mooncake, or join a late-night gathering around an art projection on a major public building?”
The festivities will kick off with a launch event at the Rotary Centre for the Arts atrium on Friday, September 25. The event will showcase live music, poetry, dance and includes refreshments. After the launch, join the Culture Crawl through the Cultural District and Downtown, stopping to explore businesses and galleries showcasing local arts and culture along the way.
