Culture Days kicks-off with Daybreaker Dance Party

September 22, 2015 –

When:  6:30 to 8:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 25 (Opening ceremony at 6:30 a.m.)

Where:  The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning, 370 King St. W.

Who: Mayor Bryan Paterson, David Moss, national director of Culture Days, Colin Wiginton, cultural services director and Daybreaker Dance partiers.

What:  Daybreaker dance party to kick-off Culture Days weekend nation-wide.

This year, Kingston is hosting the national opening ceremony for Culture Days at a Daybreaker Dance Party early Friday morning.

Daybreaker dance parties take place in the early morning hours. Some people come in costumes or pajamas while others stop-in before their workday to get their energy flowing. 

Friday's event, the second Daybreaker Dance Party to take place at the Tett Centre, promises to be a rockin' good time – and a great way to kick-off Culture Days weekend.

More than 1600 free activities are registered to take place in 170 cities and towns across Ontario for the sixth annual Culture Days on September 25, 26 and 27. Culture Days will again feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to discover the behind-the-scene world of artists and a myriad other creators at work in their community.

The Daybreaker Dance Party is presented in partnership with the Kingston Arts Council. Ontario Culture Days is supported by the Ontario Arts Council and the Government of Ontario in recognition of Celebrate the Artist Weekend.
