Kamloops Celebrates Culture Days

Kamloops, B.C. – When it comes to culture, Canadians love expressing themselves!

Kamloops residents will join the rest of Canada and British Columbia in celebrating this year’s Culture Days from September 30th to October 2nd. Culture Days will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate and discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.

The annual, three-day national celebration features 22 free events, including the following:

The local chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists is hosting an art exhibition at the Old Courthouse, with an artist demonstrating on each of the three days from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
