Outdoor Special Events

Following the Government of Saskatchewan’s regulations and requirements around COVID-19 prevention, under the current Public Health Order all outdoor public gatherings are limited to a maximum of 10 people, while ensuring physical distancing.  Special event applications are currently being accepted for use of civic space. All requests for use of civic space, through the special event application form, must adhere to the current Public Health Order and the restrictions within the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan. Only those requests demonstrating the ability to limit numbers and adhere to the restrictions will be considered. Please ensure requests are submitted well in advance of the event date to ensure time for this review.
