Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there were no Provincial Heritage Fairs in 2020 and 2021. Be sure to check out our province-wide Virtual Heritage Fair!
Check back regularly for updates regarding the 2022 Heritage Fairs season! As of August 2021, Heritage Saskatchewan is hopeful that the in-person Heritage Fairs will return in spring 2022.
Heritage Saskatchewan would like to thank everybody involved for making the 2019 Heritage Fairs season such a great success!
