The Mission Cultural Resources Commission has made a concerted effort since 2016 to cultivate participation in Culture Days and make it into a major annual event in the community! We are very excited to bring Culture Days to Mission this year.
Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture starting Sept. 22nd to Oct. 15th, 2023. The City of Mission and DBA invite you to participate in our Culture Days celebration!
Events will be happening throughout the city including 1st Avenue, Fraser Valley Regional Library branch, Mission Archives, Mission Museum, and the Clarke Foundation Theatre. Festivities include the return of Runaway Moon Theatre's Walk of the Woods Tree Parade, Community Artist Reception, a Camera Illumina experience, self-guided downtown tour, a variety show, and more! Check out our online calendar to see what events are happening downtown!
Downtown Mission is rich with opportunities to explore local arts and culture, whether it’s through tasting the world of cultural cuisine, community drumming and arts programs at the Mission Friendship Centre, moving your body in a dance class at one of our downtown studios, or hands on arts and crafts. Gallery 202 features a free public gallery showcasing local artists working in various mediums, which leads into their fun learning space where they’ll be offering classes for all ages and skill levels in manga art, clay workshops, or the pottery wheel! Culture Days is your perfect opportunity to explore downtown, discover new places, and connect with creative people in your community. We hope to see you there.
