With the reopening of Saskatchewan comes all kinds of exciting, COVID-friendly events. This June alone, Regina is going to be home to a special Pride Month story walk, the province’s first-ever Art Gallery Day, and a fun and educational migratory bird event. Keep reading to discover three must-attend events happening in Regina this June.
World Migratory Bird Day
For something fun, educational, and COVID-friendly, look no further than the one-of-a-kind World Migratory Bird Day event happening at the Wascana Lake Migratory Bird Sanctuary. Hosted in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Science Centre, this unique event is taking place for one day only on June 12th from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. Throughout the day, visitors will be invited to take part in a wide range of activities, from indigenous drum making and pond dipping to a 75-minute guided bird hike, a migration obstacle course, music therapy, and various arts and crafts. TO keep things as safe as possible, face masks or coverings and physical distancing is mandatory.
Saskatchewan Art Gallery Day
Soak up some culture by taking part in the province’s newly-announced Saskatchewan Art Gallery Day. 2021 marks the first-ever year of this even and we’re sure it’s going to be a hit. On Saturday, June 12th, art galleries across the province will come together, open their doors to the public, and host art gallery walks. There are a number of local Regina galleries that are participating, including The Lobby Gallery, Hansen Ross House, Yvette Moore Gallery, Assiniboia Gallery, Traditions Hand Craft Gallery, Slate Fine Art Gallery, and more. You can visit the event’s official website for a full list of galleries.
Pride StoryWalk at Wascana Park
Celebrate Pride Month in Regina by attending an outdoor event like no other: Pride StoryWalk at Wascana Park. Hosted by the Regina Public Library, this event is taking place in Wascana Park for one weekend only, on June 12th and 13th. Pride StoryWalk is entirely outdoors and will allow you to explore one of Regina’s most scenic parks. The event will involve the pages of beloved Canadian book Pride Colours by Robin Stevenson spaced throughout the walking path around the lake. For those that don’t know, Pride Colours is a celebration of unconditional love and is suitable for people of all ages, including children, to enjoy. The event ends with a sweet explanation of the meaning behind each colour of the pride flag.
