There's no shortage of culture in St. Catharines!

The city has topped the national rankings for the 2021 Culture Days celebration. 

Culture Days is a Canada-wide celebration of arts and culture, with hundreds of communities holding events from September 24th to October 24th. 

The City of St. Catharines says 192 local events were held, many with the support of the St. Catharines Cultural Investment Program. 

"This is a fantastic indicator of the successful work being done to drive a cultural renaissance in our community. It’s no secret that St. Catharines is rapidly becoming a cultural hot spot that punches well above its weight class, thanks to not only our efforts but also the many talented individuals who hosted cultural events and undertook creative initiatives in our community during Culture Days 2021," said Cultural Services Supervisor Noora Rizvi.

Highlights included Mexicanos in Niagara's Day of the Dead celebration at Market Square, a series of in-person arts workshops at the St. Catharines Public Library, and the Niagara Artists Centre's series of exhibitions.
