The City of Martensville held their first annual Culture Days on Saturday, September 30th in City Square. The event, which brought out approximately 50 people, offered a variety of activities to showcase different cultures. “Culture Days is a free local event for people to come and learn, participate and engage in different cultures. We felt that Culture Days would be a good addition to the annual events held here in Martensville,” Karly Russin, City of Martensville Program Coordinator II, said.
Those attending had the opportunity to participate in activities such as bannock baking, dance classes, tipi raising, a writing workshop, crafts and much more.
The purpose of this event is to encourage people to explore different cultures. “This helps give them a glimpse of what cultures are not only in and around Martensville, but beyond our city. The more education on the diversity of
cultures, the more inclusive our city will be,” Russin added.
This event will be held each year, and the City of Martensville has plans for Culture Days to grow bigger and better each year. For more information about the events held in Martensville, visit www.martensville.ca.
