The City of Windsor has a creative and vibrant cultural community that encourages artistic expression, and the celebration of cultural identity and cultural diversity. The Cultural Affairs Team works with the community to coordinate and facilitate exciting cultural opportunities for residents and visitors. The ongoing acquisition of public art; rich inheritance of cultural resources, stories, traditions, sites, documents, and built, social and natural heritage features help residents build and keep a sense of who they are and tell the Windsor story to the world.

We partner with all levels of government, the not-for-profit sector, business and the public to make sure culture and the tourism industry benefit each other. Culture is essential to the development of our City.
