Late January in Saskatchewan can be a long, cold, dark time. But if the rumours are true – Saskatoon is filled with hearty people who actually still live and thrive in winter. We go to school and work, host events and parties, play sports and yes, go outside once in awhile.
WINTERRUPTION is an effort to give you a great reason to leave your house in the dead of winter. It is a collection of live indoor events, in 8 great Saskatoon venues. There is a lot of music, but also comedy, podcast, spoken word, a unique film event and more.
The Broadway Theatre is the organizer and is helped immensely by corporate supporters STRATA Development and Affinity Credit Union, as well as +100 incredible volunteers!
Winterruption Outdoor is set for Friday, Jan 25 (6-10pm) and Saturday, Jan 26 (noon-10pm). The central focus is the STORYTELLING TIPI featuring Indigenous and New Canadian storytellers along with other tellers of tales in this unique and intimate setting. Each story is 5-20 minutes in length with the tipi holding only 18 people at a time.
Winterruption Outdoor is located behind Ecole Victoria School (Broadway Ave) and all activities are FREE including complimentary hot beverages, sleight rides, communal fire, rink activities and other great winter activities are in the works, so make sure to check back in!
