March is such a vibe in Saskatoon! The world is still a winter wonderland, but there is whiff of spring in the air! For me, it’s the month I feel reborn! I can’t stay confined in my cozy home any longer! It’s time to hit the town! Thankfully, there is so much to do in Saskatoon in March!
Arts and Culture
LUGO is Saskatoon’s biggest art party! Join the Remai Modern for a night of fashion, food, art and music! Local restaurants like Hearth, Pop, and Odd Couple will have canapes available. There are awesome musical performers and art installations, but my favourite part is seeing what the people are wearing! If you want to be inspired, this is the party for you!

If you haven’t been to the three galleries located at the University of Saskatoon, March is your month to change that! There is so much incredible art on Campus. Just out the ‘day to night’ exhibition featuring works by Kyle Beal and Anna Hawkins!

The Birds and The Bees
Persephone Theatre presents The Birds & The Bees.
Gail is too preoccupied with the exponential death of her honeybees to be sympathetic to the marital strife of the grown daughter who has moved home just in time for the town ‘Turkey Days’ celebration. As they attempt to negotiate their own sticky relationship, both women’s lives are complicated by birds, bees, and “the birds and the bees.” A laugh-out-loud comedy about love, sex, science, and the artificial insemination of turkeys! The Birds and the Bees is a hilarious romp with a huge heart.
The show opens on March 29th!
The Saskatoon Blades are playing eight home games this month, including two against the Regina Pats! Connor Bedard anyone?! Checking out a hockey game is a winter necessity and if you have not hit one up yet, let me urge you to change that.
