The 2017 Heritage Festival of Saskatoon celebrated Saskatoon’s rich heritage at the Western Development Museum on Sunday, February 5th, 2017 with a theme selected in celebration of Canada’s 150th: 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!
