The community’s annual Culture Days celebration takes place at the end of September and organizers are encouraging people to participate in the free events.

Kindersley Culture Days, a local edition of a provincial and national celebration, is scheduled for Sept. 29 to Oct. 1. There are three events planned over the three days.

However, one of the events will only take place if enough people register to participate.

Michelle McMillan, the town’s manager of culture and heritage, said two events are guaranteed to take place on the Culture Days weekend and a third, a showcase of local cuisine, will take place if enough cooks sign up by the deadline.

The Kindersley Kitchen, an event formerly known as the K-Town Chowdown, requires cooks or bakers to sign up to prepare food for a large group of people. Citizens cook their hot dishes or prepare other foods in the afternoon and serve the food to the public. Cooks provide receipts for their ingredients and are reimbursed by organizers, so the event doesn’t cost them anything but their time.

McMillan said the cooks will gather at the Elks Hall and have from noon to 4 p.m. to prepare their food. The hall’s doors open to the public at 4 p.m. and the event runs until 6 p.m. People have until Sept. 20 to register as cooks and a minimum of six cooks are needed.

Contact McMillan by email at culture@kindersley.ca or by phone at 306-463-2675 if you would like to register. The Chowdown draws 200 to 300 people on average, so it’s a popular event.
