  • Heritage Fairs Toolkit - Free PDF download available in English and in French! Updated in 2018, the second edition is now available in both languages.

We anticipate being able to resume our in-person Heritage Fairs (Regional Heritage Fairs & Provincial Heritage Fair) in 2022. Currently, there are Regional Heritage Fairs in Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw, Swift Current, and the Saskatoon Tribal Council. Please contact our Outreach Coordinator for more information about how to participate in the Heritage Fairs program and the assistance available to start up a Regional Fair.

We will continue with hosting a province-wide Virtual Heritage Fair alongside the in-person Heritage Fairs in 2022. The Virtual Heritage Fair will continue to be an opportunity for students to participate from anywhere in Saskatchewan, especially in groups larger than pairs or independently of their school. It will also be an opportunity for students to use different skills than in the in-person events, such as creating a website or video.
