Did you know that there’s a national Culture Days Weekend intended to highlight and celebrate Canadian culture in all its varied possibilities? The Culture Days theme for 2018 is “On Beat,” a collective drumming and rhythm-inspired event bringing together thousands of Canadians from coast-to-coast both in-person and online to celebrate making the arts accessible, inclusive and fun!
Deep Roots Music Festival, via an article about the Saturday parade, is highlighted on the Culture Days’ “daily dose of culture” blog. Sweet! Check it out on the Culture Days website. The specific article about Deep Roots is under August 27th.
The National Culture Days weekend just happens to fall on the same weekend as our Deep Roots Music Festival. Seems rather appropriate since the festival is a mixed bag of cultural influences!
