I was really excited when one of my dearest friends decided to visit me in Saskatoon this summer, all the way from Bali Indonesia.
She and I have laughed, cried and tried to solve the world’s problems over drinks throughout the years, from yukaflux during our college years to warm cups of luwak coffee in the Balinese sun this past November. So I thought it would be fitting for her first time in Saskatoon, to tour the city over drinks, getting to know a few of our cool neighbourhoods and hangouts, while catching up during her short stay.Read More →
I can’t remember the last time I set aside time for handmade projects that require skill and a creative eye. At least half my job as a digital media content creator is spent in front of a screen or behind a lens. It is less exciting than it appears online.
Which is why I was excited to see an event page on Facebook advertising Culture Week at Wanuskewin Heritage Park. Of particular interest to me was a workshop to make moccasins. It was also free thanks to sponsorship by PotashCorp.Read More →
Saskatoon has a bit of a reputation for going festival crazy in the summer months. There are multiple festivals every weekend June through August and now it looks like the same can be said for September!Read More →
I didn’t know much about Saskatoon before this trip. I knew that it was one of the biggest hubs of agriculture in Canada and that is pretty much it. A couple days before taking the flight, I opened Instagram and tried to find as many places as I could via the search section. I saved two coffee shops, an ice-cream parlour and some restaurants that I thought might be nice to try.Read More →
In June I went on an epic 43 kilometre overnight paddleboarding adventure along the Chief Whitecap Waterway starting at the Dakota Dunes First Nation. The CWW is also part of the Trans Canada Trail system.Read More →
Saskatoon completely surprised us. We spent the first weekend of our summer exploring this incredibly diverse city, which totally surpassed all expectations. We’ll admit, we were a bit blind to what Saskatchewan has to offer as we’ve never been, but growing up in Alberta- figured it was similar, tons of prairies and farmland. We were completely wrong.Read More →
There’s no doubt that the most charming streets in Saskatoon are those built around pedestrians, with lots of small, unique, locally-owned shops. Let’s not, however, be too quick to forget about 8th street. We sometimes lose the charm and brush the whole thing off as parking lots and big box stores, but there are some incredible and defining businesses and landmarks on 8th Street that help make Saskatoon the great city it is.Read More →
Whether it’s a bucket list item to tick off, the chance to face a fear of heights or a short-term fix for adrenaline junkies, jumping out of a perfectly good airplane with Skydive Saskatoon is truly an experience. It’s also the perfect opportunity to explore locally from a very different perspective.Read More →

Full disclosure: I sometimes dread the school holiday breaks. Not because I don’t love spending additional time with my kids, but rather because I know they’ll need to be kept busy or else I’ll hear the dreaded ‘Mom! I’m bored!’.
Luckily, there are a ton of great family-friendly places to hang with kids of all ages in Saskatoon. Here are some of our favourites:
Saskatoon has an abundance of art galleries showcasing local artists. Art Passport YXE is your guide to seeing and experiencing visual arts culture in Saskatoon. The best part about this program is that it is totally free! So grab a passport at one of the participating locations and be on your way.
Saskatoon has a reputation of housing more restaurants and bars than any other city of its size, and to solidify our rep it seems fitting that a few more new spots fire up this spring. I’ll give you the run-through of some recently opened downtown spots to check out if you’re looking to try some new flavours.
Collective Coffee is known as one of Saskatoon’s best coffee shops. Danica and I had been wanting to check out their brand new location since they opened their doors February 14th, 2017.…
Saskatchewan is known as the land of living skies and Saskatoon has its fair share of spectacular sunrises and sunsets lighting up the city. But at night, the sky still dances if…

Bubble tea isn’t something necessarily new to Saskatoon, but many people unfamiliar with this Taiwanese-created treat may not be aware of some of the readily available offerings in the city. You’ve most…
