  • Oakville ranked 4th amongst all cities in Ontario; Toronto was 1st
  • Halton ranked 2nd amongst all regions in Ontario; Toronto was 1st

Rankings were based on the number of activities held in each community. Oakville’s Culture Days at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre (QEPCCC) featured 58 activities, including theatre performances, ceramic and woodshop workshops, exhibitions and more. Toronto had 210 activities.

Thanks to a partnership with the Oakville Arts Council and QEPCCC’s active members, participants also had the opportunity to conduct the Oakville Symphony and learn how to play the steel pan with the Canadian Caribbean Association.

Culture Days is a grassroots, nation-wide movement that aims to raise awareness, participation and engagement in the arts and cultural life of Canadian communities. Oakville joined with 825 communities across Canada to celebrate culture.
