Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Saskatoon, named after the famous berries of the prairies,  is the largest city of the province of Saskatchewan which is located between Alberta and Manitoba. Surrounded by endless fields of shimmering wheat, Saskatoon is a pocket of Saskatchewan's culture, vitality, and welcoming prairie spirit. City streets are buzzing with an infusion of new restaurants and residents, breweries and bars, making Saskatoon one of Canada’s fastest growing cities.

With the South Saskatchewan flowing through the middle of town, river life is integral to the heart of the city. Almost half of the city is on each side of the river, so crossing east and west over the bridges, seeing the river, and walking the riverbank trails all are part of daily life here.

With more sunlight per year than any other Canadian city, Saskatoon comes alive in summer, with celebrations like jazz, theater, and folk festivals held June to August.

During winter, kicksledding and cross-country skiing are popular in Meewasin. The Potash Corp Wintershines festival takes place late January/early February, with an ice park, ice carving competitions, and soup cook-offs.
