First, we hope this day (a beautiful sun shiny day in Saskatoon) finds you and those around you are well and safe. We thank you all for your disciplined physical distancing while responsibly socially connecting.

The Nutrien Fireworks Festival remains committed to organizing a stellar celebration of our community and culture.

We continue to plan for a spectacular celebration on Labour Day weekend.

Of course, we recognize that current circumstances related to the effects of COVID-19 and managing the safety of our community, citizens, visitors and all who come out and celebrate with us, may require us to make modifications and even possibly change our dates. Know we are taking steps to work through various scenarios and planning appropriately for a safe and enjoyable celebration.

We will make announcements here and on our website when and as appropriate. For the time being our plans continue.

The hub of activity for the Nutrien Fireworks Festival is Saskatoon’s spectacular River Landing

The Nutrien Fireworks Festival will be on Labour Day Weekend (Friday, August 30, and Saturday, August 31). Plan to attend! There will be entertainers, vendors and lots of activities for people of all ages and interests to enjoy. Visit our featured contest areas on this website. The Nutrien Fireworks Festival is produced by On Purpose Events in partnership with Tourism Saskatoon. The primary site for the Nutrien Fireworks Festival is Rotary Park with many excellent points from which to view the fireworks.

 

Parking and traffic management is often an issue and so we encourage you to use public transit as it will be in full service with great access to the various sites. or take advantage of our free bike valet service. We also encourage you to plan a safe ride home.

The Fireworks Festival was created to bring a world class fireworks event to Saskatoon. 2008 was the inaugural year for this amazing festival which saw almost 50,000 people come out and enjoy the fireworks and other festival offerings.

 

In 2010 we announced the title sponsorship of the festival by Nutrien thereby launching the Nutrien Fireworks Festival. We continue to look forward to a weekend that will develop into a recognizable and successful annual event that will attract tourism and generate economic gains for the city.
