CENTRE WELLINGTON – This past weekend, Centre Wellington joined communities across Canada to celebrate Culture Days, a national movement created to recognize the enormous contribution of culture to healthy vibrant communities. Culture Days weekend is a great time to discover something new, something different, and connect with the creative and cultural side of Centre Wellington. Guests from near and far turned out to do just that.
Once again this year, the ever popular Culture Days Passport guided people around the community. “This was our 7th year celebrating Culture Days in Centre Wellington and it was incredible to see so many people enjoying what we have to offer in this community” noted Township of Centre Wellington Community Development Coordinator, Elizabeth Bender. “Our cultural groups and organizations work extremely hard all year at what they do very, much to the communities benefit. Culture Days is a chance to show our appreciation for all they do.”
The 3-day Cultural Days event featured 12 stops with participation and contributions from a variety of local cultural groups, organizations, and businesses. Local cultural hubs were also highlighted including the newly renovated Fergus Grand Theatre, all three local libraries, the Elora Centre for the Arts, the Wellington County Museum and Archives, as well as our greenspaces and downtown cores.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to all who were a part of Culture Days festivities this year. It was a fabulous weekend and the best part is that it is not over because every day is Culture Day in Centre Wellington!
