CULTURE DAYS – All activities FREE for everyone

On Saturday September 28th, the heart of Newmarket's cultural core invites you to explore, share, listen, create, and collaborate in a one-day celebration of Culture Days, 2019!  In every heart, there is room for wellness, and wonder.  We invite you to join in and celebrate your creative spirit through fun-filled experiences. Everyone is welcome.

Join us at any or all of 3 locations:

Riverwalk Commons & Newmarket Community Centre (200 Doug Duncan Drive)            


10 a.m. to 3 p.m.                                                              

Let go of stress and experience a variety of activation-style activities that will intrigue, delight and inspire you. Lots to choose from.  Lots to explore. Join us for some fun, and let that stress just fade away.


The Consensus Bus | Departs at 12:00 p.m.* from Riverwalk Commons (200 Doug Duncan Drive)


*Bus trip may last up to 4 hours                  

Eat your lunch early and then board the bus for a ride into the unknown. Come with a destination in mind because our bus will take you anywhere you wish to go – provided you can sway all other passengers to agree with you. With the help of our facilitator, there will be negotiation and compromise until one location is agreed upon by all – and off you go! Come early to get your seat on the bus.

Consensus Bus forms a part of the 2019 Ontario Culture Days exhibition DO BLUE BUTTERFLIES EAT PARTS OF THE SKY? curated by Dave Dyment and funded by Canada Council for the Arts  / Celebrate Ontario / Ontario Cultural Attraction Fund.

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.                                              

Connect with others through jigsaw puzzles, positive affirmation crafts and reflections on the past.  Share a "Message of Hope" to display in our Hall of Hope at the Museum. Light refreshments.
