Arts and Entertainment
William Shakespeare wrote, “The object of art is to give life a shape.” Our houses are the same. All houses have walls, but your home has your memories and stories, and your songs filling the hallways. It is you who will give your house its unique personality.
Saskatchewan is the province to help you grow your creativity. Saskatchewan produces an extraordinary number of artists, writers and musicians. Some people suggest that the open prairie leaves lots of room for ideas to flow.
The abundance of local galleries, theatres and concert halls in Regina and throughout Saskatchewan are proof that the arts flourish under our wide skies. The Regina Symphony Orchestra traces its roots back over 100 years, Regina’s prestigious Globe Theatre is over 50 years old, and the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019.
Saskatchewan is filled with galleries featuring local and international artists. The MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina is located within Wascana Park, and features touring exhibitions, regular exhibits and immersive interactive experiences. The gallery also has a cafe and shop, so you can make a day of your visit with a coffee and treat, and then bring some new art into your home.
Festivals abound throughout the year and around the province. Each May the Cathedral area in Regina celebrates the arts with the week-long Cathedral Village Arts Festival. Musicians, artisans and performers fill the community for the week, beginning with a parade and ending the week with a street festival.
Regina and Saskatoon host annual jazz festivals in June and July. Summer in Saskatchewan isn’t complete without weekend festivals such as Country Thunder in Craven, The Regina Folk Festival, the Gateway Music Festival in Bengough, All Folk’d Up Festival in Montmartre, or the Raymore Summer Slam.
