Culture Days is a national celebration of arts and culture. At the end of each September, millions of people attend thousands of participatory arts and culture events across the country. Culture Days programs invite the public to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

This year, Culture Days takes place over September 27, 28, and 29, 2019. Join us for free, immersive, and behind-the-scenes experiences in Idea Exchange locations. Check out the programs and events we have planned this year:
