The County of Brant has been chosen as a top ten community for the 2023 Ontario Culture Days, ranking third in the Rural/Small Town category.

“We are so pleased with the success of our first Brant Celebrates Culture Days,” said David Bailey, Mayor for the County of Brant. “The County of Brant’s inclusion in the top three for small towns is a testament to our dedication to promoting and celebrating the arts across Brant, and also reflects the passion and creativity of our residents.”

Culture Days is a national celebration each fall where individuals and groups across Canada are encouraged to celebrate arts, culture and heritage in their communities. The County of Brant celebrated Ontario Culture Days with its inaugural Brant Celebrates Culture Days, an initiative that focused on highlighting arts and culture throughout our communities. Brant Celebrates Culture Days was held from September 23 to October 16, 2023 and featured 34 events presented by local groups and creators.

The County of Brant provided funding to assist eligible organizers to cover the cost of hosting an event. This funding allowed for more groups and creators to participate. Mayor David Bailey contributed funds from his 2023 budget and will reallocate again for 2024.

“We would like to thank Mayor Bailey for supporting and assisting in funding for the first Brant Celebrates Culture Days,” said Kayla Cicman, Arts, Culture and Heritage Officer for the County of Brant. “Over 1000 people visited the events that took place and we are excited to share that Brant Celebrates Culture Days will be returning this fall.”

County of Brant staff are in the process of creating a new Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy that will provide direction, support and opportunities to the community. By creating a culture of creativity and expression, the community aims to enhance its reputation as a hub for cultural vibrancy in Ontario.
