Yorkton may be a small town, but it’s got plenty to do! That’s because we’re a community teeming with spirit and a positive approach to having fun all year round. Here are just a few upcoming events to look forward to!
 

YORKTON FILM FESTIVAL

The Yorkton Film Festival has a storied history. Established in 1947 by the Yorkton Film Council, this the oldest running film festival in North America! Dedicated to showcasing the most interesting and provocative short films and documentaries from Canada and around the globe, YFF is one of the most anticipated cultural events in the entire region! Takes place January 8 at the Yorkton Public Library.
 

OUR COLLECTIVE THREADS: HISTORY AND TEXTILES

On January 9 head to the Western Development Museum for the beginning of a fascinating and unique look at Saskatchewan’s history. The WDM presents an exhibit from their extensive textiles collection, meaning the history of Saskatchewan will be told through the clothes worn throughout the decades! See how hard farmers worked by examining worn pairs of dungarees, and the ways that traditions were preserved by those who settled Saskatchewan’s lands were maintained in the new world! It’s bound to be a fascinating and educational trip through time!
 

UKRAINIAN NEW YEAR DANCE RECITAL

The Canadian Prairies are home to a flourishing Ukrainian culture thanks to the vast number of Ukrainian farmers to emigrated to farm its wintry fields. That means that Saskatchewan is full of vibrant traditions, including high-flying Ukrainian dancing and the Ukrainian New year!

On January 12 join Troyanda, one of Canada’s premier Ukrainian dance troupes for their Malanka celebration! A full evening of food, drink, song and dance this is going to be one of the biggest parties of the year!

Want to experience all the great culture of the Canadian prairies? Then book a room at the Home Inn & Suites Yorkton Hotel. With great amenities like an indoor pool with waterslide and heated whirlpool, complimentary breakfast and 24-hour fitness centre we aim to be your home away from home!
