Why Saskatoon

Saskatoon is not a big city, and that’s just the way we like it! Come to Saskatoon to experience a small town vibe with all the amenities and attractions of a big city. Experience a slower pace of life and connect with locals in a meaningful and authentic way.

Culinary Excellence

With an abundance of independent restaurants, this city has a food scene to make Gordon Ramsey jealous. At every corner, you’ll find soul-satisfying food, great coffee, and live music. Saskatoon doesn’t stop at farm to fork. The agriculture that surrounds the city feeds the demand for food and libations and presents a unique way for visitors to experience the land. Visit Black Fox Farm and Distillery or Crossmount Cidery to see why Saskatoons agriculture makes some of the best food and drink around. And the best part is that you will never eat or drink alone. Locals love sharing experiences and connecting through the land, the food, the drink, and the celebrations. And there’s always something to celebrate in Saskatoon. 

Connection to Nature

If you can’t remember the last time you saw clear across a landscape to the horizon, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll never feel closed in while you enjoy the fresh air. Hop aboard the Prairie Lily to experience The South Saskatchewan that flows through our city. The beautiful river valley is protected and nurtured by the Meewasin Valley Authority and has over 80 kilometres of walking trails for you to explore. A short drive out of the city and you will find sustainable agriculture experiences, such as Farm One Forty or a western style getaway at Champêtre County to experience the beauty of the wide-open prairies in a unique and memorable way.

Indigenous History and Thriving Culture

Some of Canada’s oldest evidence of human existence is found here in Saskatoon at Wanuskewin. With artifacts dating back 6,400 years, relive the stories of the people who came here to hunt bison, gather food and herbs, and escape the winter winds so long ago. This history comes to life alongside thriving modern Indigenous culture. Experience the diverse and rich culture of the many different Indigenous peoples. In the same day, experience modern culture and art at the Remai Modern, which hosts the world’s largest collection of Picasso linocuts. By connecting art with local and global communities, Remai Modern leads knowledge sharing and seeks modern interpretations for old ideas.

Experience Canadian wilderness beside a city filled with culture and stories, food and drink. When you land in Saskatoon, you’ll feel excited and not rushed, welcomed and not overwhelmed. You’ll be part of our family.
