WHAT TO DO IN SASKATOON APRIL 2016

WHAT TO DO IN SASKATOON APRIL 2016

 

When our guests first check into the Park Town Hotel, one of the first questions that often pops into to their mind is “What is there to do in Saskatoon”?   Our guests are looking for fun filled events that can range from family friendly outings to nightlife events such as concerts, theatre performances, and festivals. The presence of leisure activities has continued to blossom in Saskatoon, making it the perfect destination for anyone looking to just get away. Being the awesome people we are, we’ve compiled the Ultimate Guide to Saskatoon for April of 2016.

We may not be Toronto of Vancouver, but Saskatoon is home to a lot of great sporting events. From Lacrosse to curling we will always have an event for you. This April is chock-full of some awesome events that are all just outside our back door.

 

SPORTS

 

Curling has long been a great Saskatchewan past time, and you know it’s a Canadian favourite because even when you’re inside you’re still on the ice. Popular in even the smallest of hometowns, Saskatchewan has seen many great successes in this sport. Make sure you take advantage of one of our hometown traditions by visiting the Mixed Doubles Curling Championship from March 31 – April 3 at the Nutana Curling Club! This is a family friendly event and will be sure to capture the attention of even the most novice fans.

 

Some people may need a more energetic sport to cheer for…one with lots of sound and lights, movement and contact. We get it.  Lucky for you, Saskatoon is home to the Saskatchewan Rush, Saskatchewan’s newest professional Lacrosse team. With the first-ever season coming to an end, make sure you get your tickets ASAP as the last few matches will be sure to sell out. These games are great for all ages and are sure to not disappoint!  To book your tickets now go to www.saskrush.com and book your tickets to either of the next games on April 2 or April 16. The next game is against the Calgary Roughnecks, so you’ll be sure to feel our provincial feud at its best!

 

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT

 

Just a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down! If you know where that’s from then you’re not going to want to miss a second of the Persephone Theatre’s presentation of Mary Poppins! This delightful retelling of the famed classic hits the stage from April 20 – May 15th. Get your tickets now at www.persephonetheatre.org  Don’t forget to save your ticket stubs after the show, because they get you extra discounts in the hotel at our Four Seasons Restaurant.

 

Theatre not quite up your alley? Well we know what is…that’s right… The Price is Right is coming to Saskatoon on April 19th! Ever dreamt of hearing those famous words “Come on Down!?” Well this could be your chance to make your dreams a reality. It’s been here before and it’s back by popular demand.  Start making your cheesy t-shirts now and book tickets at www.tcuplace.com

 

Craving a little culture? Perhaps a little Caribbean on the prairies? Well PASSA PASSA is back April 22nd at O’Brians Event Centre. This Dance Hall inspired event will make you feel like you’re in a beach club in Jamaica. Complete with authentic Caribbean food and music, Passa Passa is an event you won’t want to miss if you’re looking to let your inner Rhianna loose. For more information on Passa Passa and other events visit www.obrianseventcentre.ca

 

TOURS

 

Ever wonder how something’s made? Or are looking for a different sort of experience? Tours are the newest trend and luckily Saskatoon is home to the headquarters of the Lucky Bastard Distillery. After the owner won the Lottery (twice), he went on to open Lucky Bastard Distillery and created Lucky Bastard Vodka. From there, the sky was the limit. In their completely new and renovated location you’ll have the opportunity to watch them make your new favourite spirits and even do a tasting! You’ll lose your breath when you walk in when you see just how beautiful it is. If you’re picturing dirty floors and dirty pipes, you’ll be sorely disappointed… this venue is absolutely stunning!  For information on booking a tour please contact www.luckybastard.ca

    WINSTON SPEAR

    Winston Spear is a unique comedian with a deep deadpan delivery who has been called the King of the Obscure. Although his slightly disturbed sensibility makes him a sure-fire hit, there is a certain charisma that endears Winston Spear to audiences of all ages when he performs. He was a a semi finalist for NBC's Last Comic Standing in 2008 and Winner of the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Stand-up Comic. Winston has been performing in comedy clubs and festivals throughout North America for more than two decades. In fact, comedy once took him to the United Arab Emirates to perform. He's appeared a number of times at the Just for Laughs Festival in Toronto and Montreal, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and the Halifax Comedy Festival.


    TODD NESS

    Growing up in a single parent home, poverty stricken, and living meal to meal is the exact opposite of Todd Ness’ upbringing. From the everyday struggles of living in suburbia, to the stress of constant support from family and friends, Todd has become an expert at inventing things to complain about. He has honed his comedic skills through years of being a class clown, disobeying teachers and training his upper body. This combination of sharp whit, athletic endurance, and ability to relate to other middle class white people has enabled Todd to excel in the world of stand up comedy; earning notable credits, such as winning the 2014 Yuk Yuks Chase Your Butterfly Contest. Even though he started performing in 2009, Todd is still a fresh face on the comedy scene, especially since his prepubescent acne went away. If you enjoy having a good time, come out and experience Todd Ness first hand. If laughing hysterically with/at Todd all night doesn’t make you feel good, knowing you’re supporting his dream of moving out of his parents’ house certainly will. ​
