COVID-19 Response: Outdoor Special Events

Following the Government of Saskatchewan’s regulations and requirements around COVID-19 prevention, as well as the current Public Health Order to limit the size of public and private gatherings, event permits will only be provided for outdoor activities where guidelines for return have been established or permission by the Provincial Government has been provided. Please email specialevents@saskatoon.ca for further information. 

Special events add cultural value to the City of Saskatoon and create opportunities where communities and neighbourhoods can come together and celebrate!

A special event is any outdoor event held on City owned land that is open to the public. Whether it is a road race, a community day in the park, or a large festival, special events bring people together in meaningful and memory making ways!
