Spring & Summer Festivals in Saskatchewan

Plan your next spring or summer trip for Saskatchewan and enjoy a diverse palette of festivals fit for the entire family. From the Prince Albert Downtown Street Fair, to the Regina Dragon Boat Festival – you'll find a celebration worth while on your visit to Saskatchewan.

Make Yorkton a part of your travel plans – visit the annual Yorkton Film Festival. Founded in 1947, the Yorkton Film Festival is held in late May and focuses on films directed by Canadians and generally under 60 minutes. Venues for film screenings are the Gallagher Centre and the Sacred Heart High School.

Fans of classic literature and stage performances will want to visit Saskatoon, home of the annual Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival. Since 1985, Shakespeare fans from near and far have enjoyed live performances of plays like Romeo and Juliet, The Comedy of Errors, and A Midsummer Night's Dream – just to name a few. Head for the South Saskatchewan River from early July through mid-August when the festival concludes.

Before your time in Saskatoon is up, be sure to pay a visit to both the Mendel Art Gallery, and the Broadway Theatre.

Head for Regina on the last weekend in August for the annual Regina Dragon Boat Festival. A two-day celebration, the Regina Dragon Boat Festival takes place on waters of Wascana Lake. All events at the Regina Dragon Boat Festival are free and open to the public – visit on your next summer trip and check out exciting races, and explore the general lake area for fun kids events, too.

Visit Prince Albert in mid-June for the excitement of the Prince Albert Downtown Street Fair. Averaging nearly 5,000 visitors a year, the one day festival celebrates Prince Albert's heritage and history with seven blocks shut down of all traffic and designated for festival goers. Live music, a bounce house for the kids, food vendors, and pony rides make the Prince Albert Downtown Street Fair a virtual must-see.

Canada's Farm Progress Show

Check out the premier trade show held in Regina when you see the annual Canada's Farm Progress Show. Held each summer in mid-June at Regina's Evraz Place, Canada's Farm Progress Show is the best way to see what's on the horizon in the world of agriculture and farming. 

Canada's Farm Progress Show sees, on average, nearly 40,000 visitors each year. With so much space – 102 acres – and nearly 700 exhibitors each year, it's easy to see how so many attendees make the trip into Regina.

SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival

Take part in one of the most impressive and fun family-friendly events in Saskatchewan – the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival. Held across two days each year in late June, the Windscape Kite Festival has been thrilling families from all across the province since 2004. 

As a complement to all of the kite flying, check out the Long Day's Night Music Festival – the main tent on the Windscape Kite Festival grounds transforms into a staged venue for several different bands. The kids will enjoy building their own kites, having their faces painted, and the Straw Bale Maze is a must-see.
