Since Culture Days began in 2010, more and more communities are using an official municipal proclamation as an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the cultural activities in their area. Weyburn, Kindersley, Saskatoon and Regina, as well as the Province of Saskatchewan, have all proclaimed Culture Days in the past. Join the movement. Celebrate the difference culture is making in your community!
