Fringe Out

posted by My Saskatoon    |   July 31, 2015 11:58

Kicking off its first night on Thursday, the Fringe Festival is here again! If you are in the city this August long weekend, make sure you check out the Broadway district for all that the Fringe has to offer. From street buskers and vendors, food, arts and crafts, the Fringe Festival sees over 40,000 people filling the streets to check out the local and international vendors and artists! The independent theatre provides you entertainment from local artists as well as international artists and you can see them at the Broadway Theatre. The hours are as follows: Tuesday-Friday, 6:00pm-10:30pm, Saturday/Sunday/Monday, 12:00pm-10:30pm.

 

Craving ribs? Saskatoon's RibFest is on again this weekend, with professional "ribbers"  from across the nation providing you with ribs and other BBQ to tantalize your taste buds. Bring a blanket and chair to Diefenbaker Park where you will find free admission, parking, live music and games for the kids! It starts at 4:00pm-dusk tonight and 11:00am-dusk Saturday and Sunday. All proceeds go to charity so come on out and support local, give back and eat well!

August in Saskatoon

posted by My Saskatoon    |   August 22, 2014 10:37

Saskatoon is truly a city that thoroughly enjoys its summer!  As residents of the downtown area, we’ve had the pleasure of living right in the middle of some of Saskatoon’s summer events.  What a treat to cook dinner with the background music of Jazz Fest’s Ms. Lauryn Hill coming in through our windows!

June and July were fantastic but I’m realizing that Saskatoon saves some of the best for last. This has been my first August in Saskatoon, and boy am I impressed!  

The first nine days of the month, the Fringe Festival was in full swing on Broadway Avenue!  My husband and I visited on a few occasions – taking in the crafts, the artwork, and of course, the street theatre (zombie newlyweds!). 

We also visited the Saskatoon ‘EX’, enjoying mini donuts, a free concert by Walk Off the Earth, and Safeway Kidsville. We don’t have kids of our own, but it sure was fun watching little ones going on rides or petting ponies in the petting zoo!  

My personal favourite was the President’s Choice SuperDogs.  If you haven’t seen this dog show, you must!  I don’t know what it is about dogs doing tricks or racing through obstacle courses but the crowd literally went wild – including me!  I can’t remember the last time I laughed that hard. I probably would have been embarrassed, but, like I said, the whole crowd was wild! 

 

Sadly, we weren’t able to make it to Folkfest, but I hear it’s another great August event, and I’m already looking forward to the PotashCorp Fireworks Festival on August 29-30.

Of course, it’s always sad when summer ends, but I hear that Saskatoon is beautiful in the fall!
