Fall & Winter Events in Saskatchewan

Fall and winter make for great times of the year to visit Saskatchewan. You can enjoy the smooth and hip sounds of the StirCrazy Blues Festival or the Canadian Western Agribition in Regina.

Typically held the last weekend in February, the StirCrazy Blues Festival is a popular event in Swift Current. The three-day event is hosted at the Lyric Theatre and regularly features top blues bands from the area and even internationally. Visitors into Swift Current also enjoy visits to the Swift Current Museum.

Head to Regina during the fall and check out the Canadian Western Agribition. Usually held during the second week of November, the Canadian Western Agribition is one of the largest agricultural marketplaces in Saskatchewan – there's a trade show, and multiple rodeos for you to enjoy.

All the action of the CWA takes place at the Evraz Place, which was once known as Regina Exhibition Park. Make the scenic drive in from Moose Jaw, set to the west, and enjoy the CWA during fall.

In the city of Martensville, a neighbor of Saskatoon, visit in early February and check out the Martensville Winter FunFest. Usually held the first Saturday in February, the Martensville Winter FunFest features indoor and outdoor events like top shot hockey, sleigh rides, and cross country skiing – head for the North Ridge Centennial Community Centre and Kinsmen Park for events. Saskatoon is worth a visit, too: check out the Mendel Art Gallery, or the Broadway Theatre.

More centrally located in Saskatchewan is Prince Albert. Plan a visit into the area for late February and experience the fun of the Prince Albert Winter Festival. The indoor events at the Prince Albert Winter Festival typically begin a week prior to the outdoor events, and includes a Mr. and Mrs. Winter Festival pageant, a Beard Derby, and a jigging contest (think fishing, but with no pole.)

Outdoor events at the Prince Albert Winter Festival include 3 on 3 Street Hockey, a Chili Cook Off, and fireworks show capping off the festival.
