The 2017 Heritage Festival of Saskatoon will celebrate Saskatoon’s rich heritage on Sunday, February 5th, 2017, 12 – 5 pm at the Western Development Museum, 2610 Lorne Avenue.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th, we have chosen this year’s theme as 1867-2017, Moose Woods to Metropolis, Moving Forward:
One hundred and fifty years ago this place we call Saskatoon was emerging within a new land called Canada. To the east was the Moose Woods, home to an indigenous population who would play a significant role in the early settlement of Saskatoon and beyond. Chief Whitecap and John Lake would emerge as significant leaders paving the way to the diverse metropolis of the greater Saskatoon of today. Happy 150th Canada!
Come explore the rich diversity of Saskatoon from past to present through the variety of heritage and multi-cultural themed displays & interactive exhibits throughout the museum.
Join in the Opening Parade! Chat with our exhibitors or get answers to your questions. Try your hand at old-time activities or brush up on your “home skills”. Play a game. Learn more about the cultural landscape of Saskatoon. Hands-on activities & demonstrations are offered throughout the afternoon. Entertainment on two stages features performances by fantastic performers, children’s entertainers, and musicians. Free Admission to the Museum and Festival.
Hosting an exhibit at the festival is a wonderful opportunity to promote interest in, and knowledge of, our city’s history and to showcase your organization. Last year’s attendance surpassed 2800 people.
