The following Milton Culture Days sponsors have all contributed to this important event – in different but important ways!
Both Milton Orthotic & Wellness Centre and Mabel’s Labels have shown their support through sponsorship. Mabel’s Labels, an Ontario based sticker and labeling company, is also donating both financial sponsorship, as well as a donation of swag for our little Culture Days collectors (participating kids can collect stickers at each activity for the chance to pick out some trinkets at the end of their visit!).
Mark Recile is one of the most creative Directors on the Arts Milton Board, and is sponsoring Milton Culture Days on behalf of Shaolin Temple Quanfa Institute. STQI wants to share with the community the practice of mind and body cultivation using Traditional Shaolin Temple Kung Fu.
The Milton Villager supports Milton Culture Days through community coverage, and amazing photography! Thanks to their team, we are able to capture the essence of this amazing event!
Paramount Fine Foods Milton will craft a series of delicious appetizers and sandwiches to be enjoyed at both the Opening Reception Party, and in the Activity Organizer Refreshment Room throughout the weekend.

We have a great group of Milton Culture Days sponsors this year, and chances are the event would not be nearly as exciting without them!
Thank-you to McCuaig Insurance Milton for finding Arts Milton the right insurance for our unique needs, and for their financial support of our biggest programming event of the year!
Thank-you to Milton Home Hardware and the ReStore Milton for seeing our vision of a painted vintage vinyl stage backdrop and providing us with all of the materials to make it possible. Painstakingly designed by local artist Omar “Oms” Hopkinson.
Thank-you to Real Canadian Superstore for their continued support of our Activity Organizer Refreshment Room. And for agreeing to host one of our most popular children’s activities – a cooking class for kids by PC Cooking School Milton!
Thank-you to The Home Depot for partnering with Arts Milton to make our 2018 Community Project possible. The Home Depot will provide all of the wood, stain and tools needed to bring artist Angela Ferguson’s collective community creation to life!
There are two excellent ways to plan your Milton Culture Days experience. You can visit culturedays.ca and search events in Milton (There’s over 100!). You can narrow the search by location, date, and type of activity. You can even create a Bright Spots Schedule!
Another way to pick and choose your activities at Milton Culture Days is to visit the Arts Milton website and check out our 2018 Activity Sheets. Broken down by date and time, these sheets also tell you the type of activity, and where you can find it during the Culture Days weekend! Feel free to print, and circle favourites the old fashioned way 😉
Of course, you can also join us at the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton on September 29 and 30 and just see where the wind takes you!
Arts Milton thanks Milton Optometry and McCuaig Insurance for their financial sponsorship of Milton Culture Days. This kind of gift allows us to enhance the event in important ways. Examples of this might include an increased marketing budget, more supplies for workshops, and the ability to add more technical support.
We are grateful for donations from both Home Hardware and The Home Depot this year. Milton’s Home Hardware Building Centre has donated all of the supplies for our 2018 Stage Backdrop. This allows Arts Milton to work with a local artist to create the showpiece of the event. The Home Depot is donating materials for our Annual Arts Milton Community Project – as they have generously done in past years. The Community Project is an important element of Milton Culture Days – often resulting in a mural style project which is hung on the walls of the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton.
Both the Real Canadian Superstore and Paramount Fine Foods Milton will contribute food, beverages and appetizers to our Opening Reception Party and in our Activity Organizer Refreshment Room.
The Milton Villager Magazine faithfully covers the Culture Days event each year, in addition to sending professional photographers to capture all the interactive fun!
Arts Milton is excited to partner with MyFM this year for a series of radio spots and interviews about Culture Days.
Since it’s inception only a couple of year’s ago, Milton’s new radio station has gathered a dedicated base of listeners, and a great deal of support from the business community. In addition to an appealing range of music, MyFM manages a popular social media presence, and has become a go to source for community news!
For the past few years, the Fine Arts Society of Milton’s Annual Studio Tour has been on the same weekend as Milton Culture Days. Luckily for us, that hasn’t precluded the group from participating in our event!
For the third year in a row, FASM artists will put together a miniature exhibition for Milton Culture Days. This year, each artist will ask the viewer a question – encouraging engagement with each two-dimensional piece.
The Milton Culture Days Opening Party takes place on Friday, September 28 this year, and Arts Milton is thrilled to offer guests at the party a taste of Chudleigh’s new cider! Join us at 7 pm in the MinMaxx Hall at the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton.
At Chudleigh’s we know that great ciders start with great apples. That’s why we’re proud to use only the best Chudleigh-grade apples to create our all-natural orchard cider. Unfiltered with a naturally cloudy appearance, our hard cider is crisp and refreshingly easy to drink.
The sparkling balance of sweet and tart of Chudleigh’s Orchard Cider pairs well with pork dishes, particularly barbeque and/or spicy recipes.
Hartmann’s Community Centre is an organization who’s focus is on art workshops, preserving heritage and language. At Milton Culture Days 2018, Hartmann’s, led by Maria Reis and team, will host a series of activities for attendees which focus on blindness and visual impairment.
“Hartmann’s Community Centre will challenge you to draw while blindfolded, taste while blindfolded and “try your hand” at braille reading in order to develop an understanding of what it is like to be blind.”
Find it in the Escarpment Hall
Sept 29, 2PM-4PM
Each year for Culture Days, Arts Milton designs activity sheets listing all of the weekend’s workshops, classes and performances. Attendees are given an activity sheet when they arrive, making it easy for them to choose an activity happening right then and there!
We thank Staples Milton for generously printing our activity sheets for the second year in a row. These double sided colour copies will be printed at the local Staples Copy Centre – a great resource for advertisements, work projects and personal gifts and invitations.
