What Are We Asking?
The Permanent Outdoor Festival Feasibility Team is working to identify, select, study and plan for the future development of a City of Saskatoon Permanent Outdoor Site. Consultants from HTFC Planning & Design led the feasibility study on behalf of the City of Saskatoon, engaging Steering Committee members, City staff, various stakeholders and the public through this process.
The goals of this project were to identify a preferred site location, the criteria for an ideal festival site, and the corresponding program elements and features. The Project Team considered this input in developing the concept design and business case for City Council.
