Morden is a proud participant in this year’s Culture Days Weekend. Culture Days is an event that millions of Canadians celebrate together during the last weekend in September with free activities and performances hosted by artists, cultural organizations, and municipalities in communities across Canada. From Nunavut to New Brunswick, and from British Columbia to Baffin Island – and all points in between – we share all the inspiration, artistry, creativity and expression that reflects the mosaic of Canadian culture.
“We’re very excited to be involved in Culture Days and hope the event will continue to grow in the coming years as we celebrate the arts!” ~ Stephanie Dueck, City of Morden Rec Programmer.
The City of Morden and the local participating organizations would love to have the community show up to events to help celebrate this national three-day, annual celebration of the arts. There have been events in Morden in the past couple years organized by Pembina Hills Arts Council, but this year with support from Culture Days MB, the community has increased events by involving Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre, Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame, Pembina Valley Events, Bella’s Castle and the City of Morden, with continued involvement by PHAC.
Live performances, hands on workshops, science, heritage and downtown cycling are just a few of the features of Morden’s Cultural Days events. Events are scheduled from Sept 28 to Sept 30 and include a poetry slam, CFDC tours in 6 languages, Vendor & Artisan Sale + Cultural Displays, Mosaic Workshop, Bella’s Castle Tour, Cardboard Sculpture Workshop, Evening Bike Jam and Winnipeg Beer Choir at the Suncatch.
“Join us for a weekend that promises to engage and entertain! It’s a great way to celebrate Canada!” shared Clare Agnew, Community Services and Events Manager.
