Heritage Saskatchewan would like to thank everybody involved for making the 2022 Heritage Fairs season such a great success! We had a wonderful Virtual Heritage Fair and we were thrilled to have an in-person Provincial Heritage Fair on June 15, 2022. It was our first in-person Heritage Fair since 2019 and it was a resounding success! Despite being smaller and shorter than in previous years, everyone had a wonderful time learning, sharing, competing, exploring, and celebrating our heritage.
Check out the photos from the 2022 Provincial Heritage Fair! (coming soon)
Special thank you to our sponsors, Sask Lotteries and the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation!
