Visit Culture Days Website

Culture Days is a national, annual three-day celebration of the arts starting on the last Friday of September.

Millions of Canadians engage in thousands of 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.

Live music at Bella’s Castle

Enjoy a delicious supper or drinks at Bella’s Castle Restaurant while listening to Nation of Two.

Nation of Two is a folk duo composed of Winnipeg’s Jessee Havey and Nathaniel Good of West Virginia. The two have a classic love story with a musical twist: a northern Prairie songbird and an authentic Appalachian boy meet in a coastal city, fall in love and cross borders together to build a life and take the stage. The pair write music that draws on the narrative traditions of Appalachian music and socially-significant protest songs. Two incredible voices from two separate countries. Two major talents meeting to create a musical Nation of Two.
