Culture Days

8:00 am - Oct 2nd, 6:00 pm / Various Locations around Saskatoon

This is a City of Saskatoon Event for the whole city. There are several events going on around the city in Various locations. 

These days are dedicated to art, the diversity that make up our fair city and community engagement. 

Part of this festival is "Nuit Blanche" which is entering it's third year. It's a unique event that has seen great success in several other cities.

New public art has shown up all over the city - there is a bike tour that will guide you through it all! 

All the venue/events are great, and not only are educational but a tonne of fun and a great activity to keep yourself moving as the weathe turns chilly!
