Richmond Culture Days opening weekend kicks off with in-person activities
22 September 2021
Richmond Culture Days has arrived. Be sure to visit the Richmond Cultural Centre Plaza (7700 Minoru Gate) on Saturday, September 25 and Sunday, September 26 as local artists and makers launch the month-long program that runs until October 24. Take part in free or “pay what you may” (PWYM) activities happening virtually and in-person across the city.
The opening weekend in the Cultural Centre Plaza will feature local arts groups, musical performances and street artist performers from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Other in-person highlights this weekend include the opening of the Richmond Museum’s new exhibition, Reinventing Richmond; the Richmond Public Library’s launch of the annual Richmond Writer-in-Residence program; and Barigord Studios on site, creating a stop-motion-capture film of the Richmond Cultural Centre made entirely of LEGO.
The City of Richmond is fully committed to operating safely and working to ensure all Provincial Health Orders and recommendations are followed. Please stay home if sick, respect personal space, and bring a mask as it will also be required inside buildings.
Virtual programming throughout the four week celebration includes performances and artist talks by Richmond Music School Society and the Platinum Players. Visit culturedays.ca for details about arts and culture activities, online live-stream events, digital content and self-guided programs.
Richmond Culture Days is a celebration of arts and culture featuring Richmond-based artists, groups and organizations. Each year, millions of people across Canada attend Culture Days participatory events and art-filled activities from coast to coast to coast. This year, artists and groups will hold more in-person programming than in 2020, continuing to find unique and safe ways to come together while apart. While the annual Culture Days event is always a great way to celebrate creativity in communities, digital options have the added benefit of allowing participants to share across the country.
