We have had a good and busy year full of family fun! Here is our best of 2023 in Saskatoon. I don’t want to overwhelm anybody, so I pick a few favourites each month. Most of these will be back in 2024 so you will have a chance to check it out for the first time or for the second time. Thank you to all our readers for your support this year. It’s been such a great year full of amazing events.

Most months, we’ve also had many visits to Saskatoon Libraries, the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market, playgrounds, lots of walks by the river, watched many amazing sunrises and sunsets in the Land of the Living Skies and of course tried out some tobogganing hills (from January-March of 2023, we are still waiting for snow for sledding this season)!

Best of 2023 in Saskatoon

January 2023

Wildlife Festival

January brought us closer to some sloths at the Saskatoon Wildlife Festival. We also did a lot of snowshoeing, went ice fishing, visited the animals at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo and had fun in the snow at Wander’s Tiny Farm.

February 2023

Wide Open Theatre

February brought more fun outdoors and some fun inside at Wide Open Children’s Theatre: Munsch Mania. We also celebrated Valentine’s Day and participated in the Discovery Dash at Nutrien Wonderhub.

March 2023

Family Expo

March had a lot of fun expos! From Family Fun at the Saskatoon Family Expo to Homestyles, we had a blast wandering around the expos at Prairieland. We played in the snow, fed chickadees and went on hikes as the weather began to warm up. Of course, we also tried to trap a leprechaun.

April 2023


April was a beautiful month. We made sure to visit Wanuskewin. We also had a mom-and-son day downtown in Saskatoon and visited Remai Modern and The Shoppe. We spent some time decorating Easter eggs and made a few visits to the Western Development Museum. We got out the bikes and enjoyed both biking and hiking.

May 2023

Beautiful May brought us dandelion collecting, time outside and it let me meet Joey Jeremiah at the Saskatoon Entertainment Expo (there was also A LOT for all members of my family to enjoy).

Punchbuggy Birthday

May is also my son’s birthday month and we celebrated in class on A Punch Buggy Express Birthday Party. Of course, this month is also a time to start your garden and buy all the flowers! We made sure to visit Nutrien Playland at Kinsmen Park, do some nature crafts and find some lactose-free ice cream.

June 2023

Red Ball Saskatoon

In June, my son and I followed around the The RedBall Project in Saskatoon and posed with it every time we found it! We gardened, spent time outside, and planned for school to end. We stopped by the Saskatoon Zoo to visit the Prairie Butterfly House.

July 2023


July was busy and warm. We celebrated Canada Day in Saskatoon. It was a wonderful day spent downtown by the river. We tented in our backyard, grew flowers, picked flowers and went biking to spray parks and paddling pools.

Berry Picking

We enjoyed Saskatoon Berry Picking at Rhodes. My family took a week-long trip to Ontario. When we returned, we got to meet the Snowbirds at the Meeting the Snowbirds at the Saskatchewan Aviation Museum.

August 2023

Robertson Valley Farm

My kiddo went to Wildernook for a week-long camp. This is his favourite part of summer. We also went to pick flowers at Flower U-Pick at Robertson Valley Farm. It was truly an experience that slowed me down and proved the small moments in life are some of the best.

Saskatoon Fringe Festival

The Saskatoon Fringe is something I look forward to every summer. This was the first year that my son did all the activities with me and we had the best time. We went to the Saskatoon Ex in August and we made sure to get as many outside adventures as we could. We did a StoryWalk at Kinsmen Park and spent some more time having family fun at Nutrien Playland at Kinsmen Park. We also stopped by the Saskatoon Zoo to visit the zebras and watch the butterflies (and to visit all the rest of the animal gang!) Our last fun in August was Trucktastic 2023 and Art in the Park Summer Festival. We loved them both.

September 2023

Get Outside Club

The start of school doesn’t stop our adventures. The weather this season was beautiful and we took advantage. We started the month with a trip to Pike Lake to hike and feed the chickadees and another great visit to Wanuskewin. My friend and I became season ticket holders for Persephone Theatre and we’ve loved the plays. We joined the best free club in Saskatoon – Get Outside! Kids Club with Wildernook. Each month, we try to join in on the outdoor adventures. We went to the 33rd Street Fair in Saskatoon and then jumped right into Fall activities – like pumpkin picking at Robertson Valley Farm and corn mazes.

October 2023

YXE Corn Maze

October brought us some beautiful weather and stunning colours. We spent as much time hiking outside as we could. We spent a rainy adventure at YXE Corn Maze and had the best time. We also went to the Rosetown Harvest Festival for the first time and played in leaves.

Beaver Creek

We fed the chickadees at Beaver Creek (the article was from a Fall visit in 2021 but we made sure to go again this year.) We got ready for Halloween fun.

November 2023

Dog Man the Musical

November brought no snow but lots of fun, including my son’s first musical. Dog Man the Musical at Broadway Theatre was an amazing experience. We did a lot of urban hiking in the beautiful weather.

BHP Enchanted Forest Walk

We did the BHP Enchanted Forest walk. As always, we were enchanted by the beautiful lights. We also walked through the Festival of Trees at the Western Development Museum. We also made sure to check out A Winter’s Tale Light Show at the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan site. November and December were spent driving around to look at the beautiful Christmas displays.

December 2023

Glow Saskatoon

And finally, December. A beautiful month filled with Christmas cheer and if you wanted, you could find an event every single weekend. I wanted to share ALL THE PHOTOS from this amazing month but decided the one from A Fairytale Christmas at Glow Saskatoon covers the beauty of the season. We went to Prince Albert National Park to pick our own Christmas Tree and while there we found snow! We were delighted and got carried away at Cirque du Soleil: Corteo. We made sure to add Whoville in the Garden to our Christmas Display stops. After Christmas, we had some holiday fun at Crossmount.

We did a lot this year and I still feel like there’s so much more to do in this city! Happy New Year to you all. May 2024 be as full of Saskatoon events and family fun.
