Join the Oct 4 Kick-Off!

Wild about Saskatoon is thrilled to invite you to an evening of celebration and fun, as we begin planning for the award winning NatureCity Festival 2019. Join us in the back room at Amigo’s Cantina starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 4 for an evening of music, snacks, good company and inspiring talk.

To get the conversation started, we’re gathering together some of the most exciting people we know to give “lightning talks” on the following theme: What hopeful changes are “sprouting” in Saskatoon right now that we can support and encourage, through the Festival and others ways? How can we nurture our wildest dreams for this city? Speakers will include Andrea Lafond, CEO of Meewasin; Joseph Naytowhow Cree Elder, Joanne Blythe from Permaculture Saskatchewan, Jenalene Antony from Jenalene Designs and Henry Lau from the City of Saskatoon.

The event is free, and drinks will be available for purchase.

How Would You Grow Wild?

NatureCity Festival Receives 2018 Tourism Award 

We have exciting news! NatureCity Festival has been honoured by Tourism Saskatoon.
 
"I come in contact with over 60 festivals and events annually, and while all of them are jewels in the Saskatoon crown, NatureCity Festival offers visitors and residents something precious and unique, and has done so for a number of years. The Festival has successfully made us think and rethink our very surroundings that we so often take for granted," says Tracey Thompson, the Leisure and Recreation Marketing Specialist with Tourism Saskatoon. "Blessed as we are living in this special place, it is essential that we make sustainability, respect and ecology top of mind. NatureCity Festival is a celebration of our environment and the people that are passionate about this place."

Thank you for helping to grow wild Saskatoon! This is your award and we are looking forward to what is growing in our neighbourhoods for 2019!

NatureCity Festival 2018 Report

"The city is full of life - and where there's life - there's hope. To each of you I ask; How will you get involved as a volunteer in one of the many organizations that are growing wild urban spaces? What can you create in your own life to add a touch of wilderness to our shared environment? NatureCity Festival will be back next May to celebrate with you. Until then, grow wild Saskatoon!" - Candace Savage
